Katharine has always been passionate about Art. She completed a BA Honours in Fine Art at Loughborough University in 2011 and was determined to stay focused on her artwork and love of painting all things wildlife and pets!

She began making pet portraits alongside working full time in hospitality. As the Skorkart brand began to grow it was clear that running a small business making artwork was an achievable dream. When she was given the opportunity to set up at Halfpenny Green Craft Village in 2019,  She took the plunge leaving her full time job to start her dream job and transformed the unit into the studio, gallery and shop that it is today. Skorkart is continuing to grow, Katharine offers Pet Portraits, Wildlife Art Prints and Originals, Greetings Cards, Art Classes and Home Giftware such as Mugs, Coasters, Cushions and lots more!

As Christmas is around the corner, Katharine will be offering many gift options for the festive season. These include: Christmas Pet Portraits (There is a waiting list, so book in quickly!), Christmas Cards, Tree Decorations, Personalised Items, Mugs, Coasters, Cushions, Tea Towels, Prints and if that isn’t enough there is more!

Skorkart have some exciting plans for 2022 with the chance for you to get stuck in! Katharine will be offering Watercolour and Pastel Classes next year, as well as the possibility of an Art Club… You can find out more via her website – www.skorkart.co.uk or email skorkart@gmail.com.
