The Artists

kathrynKathryn Smyth was born and raised in Cork City, and now lives with her husband and two children outside Midleton, in East Cork. This is also where she has set up her studios. She began her formal art education in Coláiste Stiofáin Naofa, Cork, which led to her acceptance into the Crawford College of Art and Design in 2002. From there she received her Batchelor of Fine Arts in 2006, continuing her studies to obtain an Honours degree in Fine Art in 2007.She has found that her huge interest in sport and science has fed into her artwork in a major way, and has given her a much better understanding of the natural form and movement of the body, which is central to her work. It has also given her an innate appreciation of how a person’s spirit, or life force, can often override their physical attributes.
