Katrina Slack was born in Exeter. She studied Sociology in London, subsequently gaining a post-graduate qualification in Photographic Journalism. While working as a photographer and a teacher, she became involved in the music industry, playing in a band, writing and touring.
In 2001 Katrina moved to west Cornwall, attending a variety of classes at Penwith College and St Ives School of Painting. She employs a wide range of media to express her concern for environmental issues. The art of Kurt JACKSON has been an influence on her work. Recently she received a commission from World Animal Protection to make a series of sculptures out of 'ghost fishing' gear, for display around the UK to promote their 'Sea Change' campaign. Locally, her work has been shown at Blue Mist Gallery in St Ives.
