Kathryn Morcom was born in Liskeard, Cornwall. Her interest in drawing and painting began at an early age, inspired greatly by the paintings of her Aunt, the late Margaret MORCOM.
From 1971 to 1974 she studied photography at Derby College of Art, a media continuing to influence her painting.
'I am particularly passionate about the Cornish Coastline, including the Isles of Scilly. With its great variation of shapes and colours, there is never a lack of subject inspiration to observe and paint.'
