Kathy Wilmott

Kathy Wilmott’s work is full of joy and repetition of circular movement.

Kathy Wilmott’s work is full of joy and movement, with flowing circular patterns, combined with immersive colour combinations. She works across a variety of mediums, including illustration, textiles and ceramics, but her work always starts with illustration.

Kathy’s practice draws on her love of music and she cites her inspirations as Elvis, Michael Jackson, Shakin’ Stevens and Freddie Mercury.
