Katherine Firth

Portrait Painter
Oil, pastel
Cambridge

Based in Cambridge, I have a History of Art degree, and a Diploma in Portrait Painting from Heatherley's School of Fine Art.  I am a member of The Lots Road Group of Portrait Painters which exhibits annually in London and have recently been commissioned by several Oxford and Cambridge institutions.

I have painted for most of my life but have particularly focussed over the past seven years on my passion for painting people. I am fascinated not only by capturing likeness and character, but also in distilling the interaction between me and my subject, so I work directly from life wherever possible (although I do work from photographs if necessary).  I am also particularly interested in keeping the picture surface interesting and vibrant; preferring to work with oil or pastel and enjoying painting both quick oil sketches and more complex large-scale portraits.  I am happy to accept commissions both locally and further afield, and to travel (within reason) to do so.

I also enjoy painting still-life subjects and landscapes.
