Kitty Wass

January Sails

As well as her great love of Purbeck and its coastline, Kitty paints series of very small jewel-like canvases inspired by travels to Rajasthan, Italy and the Swiss Alps with their gorgeous flora and fauna.  She has just been informed that her painting of St Aldhelm's Chapel is the chosen image for the Morley College Christmas card.


Kitty trained in Printed Textiles and Fashion at Loughborough College of Art and Design. She worked as a freelance designer for the British, Italian and American market. Subsequently she taught fine art textiles and photography.

Her first jewellery designs were made in silver and gold. Having been featured in the BBC’ s 'What Not to Wear' she was told unequivocally that she should be wearing bright sparkling jewellery, so undaunted, she began to include semi-precious stones in her work to make necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Her jewellery sold at the Gilbert Collection Shop, Somerset House, Strand, where she was invited to give a talk about her work. Kitty was a member for twenty years, and the chair for eight years, of the professional group, Teddington Artists.
