Katharine Meeding

Katharine Meeding is known for her beautiful use of colour and dynamic brushstrokes. She mainly works with oil paint, glitter and watercolour. She incorporates the unconventional medium of glitter to create quirky paintings that capture her audience’s imagination. Her work portrays personal subjects and she has a keen eye for capturing the subtle nuances and aspects of her sitter’s personality. She not only paints her partner and herself in various costumes and scenes, but also portray tender and humorous moments. Her art is rooted in theatre and literature and she draws extensively from her travels abroad.

She was born in Pretoria in 1984 and she currently resides in Cape Town. She has participated in a number of group exhibitions as well as curated a number of shows. Her debut solo ‘A Room of One’s Own” at Woordfees 2017 was well-received.
