GREEN, Katie Jane

1972 - ?

As Katie Jane Hutchings she grew up in Yorkshire in a lodge house to a stately home, her house was in the middle of a forest and she fell in love with nature when they first moved there. On leaving school she attended Barnsley College of Art to study Surface Pattern Design where she specialised in weave and print and after many years of being away from a loom she picked up the shuttle and commenced weaving again. She married at Braintree, Essex in 2005 Alexander W. Green and works under the name of Katie Green. She is also an artist painting woodland scenes, coastal views and landscapes working mainly in acrylic and oils using palette knives, brushes, or anything to obtain the texture. Her woven cushion covers are influenced by her paintings and she uses only the most beautiful yarns which include mohair, alpaca, baby alpaca, merino, angora and British wool. She has her studio at 8 Clopton Drive, Long Melford, Suffolk and is a member of Suffolk Open Studios.
