Kathryn is a 'renaissance woman': artist, writer, photographer, designer, producer, theatre director, actor.
She started her career as a graphic artist-designer in Sydney & has worked also as a stage designer in NSW & SA.
She is currently artistic director of Sealand Theatre Inc. and a partner in Bohemian Makeovers, for GEKA enterprises, South Australia.
She has worked (as an artist- designer) on major festivals in NSW including Songlines, Winter Magic & the Blue Mountains Music Festival.
Kathryn has exhibited on many occasions with her husband, sculptor Geoff Bromilow, in NSW & SA, at venues such as Everglades Gardens (Leura), Hahndorf Academy (Adelaide Hills, SA) and The Courthouse, Normanville & The Links, Lady Bay on the Fleurieu Coast. Her work is influenced by her life close to nature on the Fleurieu Coast, south of Adelaide, and her love of artists such as the Vienna secessionists (Kilmt & Schiele), and the British Arts & Crafts Movement.
She currently shows painting & drawing on a regular basis at the Yankalilla District Council community art gallery, and from her studio in Delamere, SA.
