Katherine Firth


Based in Cambridge, Katherine has a History of Art degree, a Diploma in Portrait Painting (Heatherley’s School of Fine Art) and was Picture Editor for HarperCollins for ten years. She has painted prolifically for the last twenty years; increasingly concentrating on her passion for painting people. Fascinated not only by capturing likeness and character, but also in distilling the intimate interaction between the artist and sitter; she works directly from life wherever possible and is happy to travel to do so. She enjoys painting both quick oil sketches as well as larger formal portrait commissions and she has paintings in the collections of several Oxford and Cambridge colleges.
