Born 1975 | Western Cape, South Africa
Artist Katherine Wood was born on 10th January 1975 in Cape Town, South Africa. Although not much is known about the artist in younger years, it is clearly apparent that an aptitude for art and painting was in her blood right from the word go!
Following obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the University of Stellenbosch, as well as supplementary Interior Design and Graphic Design diplomas, Katherine went on to realise her dream of becoming a professional South African artist extraordinaire.
Each one of Katherine Wood’s artworks are truly spectacular; each one an inspirational masterpiece. A fusion of mixed media presents an abstraction interpretation of wide open landscapes. Her signature focal area is the sky – vast expanses of open space with a complex combination of colour, texture, depth and light.

Art Curator for the Exhibition: "Walking the Street" 6 April 2001 to 23 April 2001 Observatory, Cape Town
Katherine was the curator for a two week multi media art exhibition where the street and shops of Lower Main road were all turned into mini galleries. "Walking the Street" was the first South African art exhibition where an entire street hosted an exhibition for over 100 artists. With dividing energies between promoting South African artists and the growing success in delving into her own art Katherine decided to pursue a painting career full time and sold the Klarity premises.
