I'm Katrina Ward. I'm an artist, textile designer and educator working in Taranaki, New Zealand.
Mostly I paint these days but I also design textiles, make dresses in my own prints and shrink things for miniature projects to sell digitally. I'm a massive fan of bad puns, love strong coffee, miniature revamps and big ideas. I'm currently doing a 100 day challenge to 'declutter and add more colour' at home and I'm also on a mission to find the elusive balance between fun mum, hum drum and going for a run.
When I'm not teaching you will find me painting, hanging with our two kids or escaping to the sea or bush for a long walk or run.
