RAFFELL, Kathryn A

1953 - ?

As Kathryn A. Hunt, she was born at Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire in 1953 and spent her childhood in the Cotswold’s, later moving to London where she lived for several years before settling in Suffolk. Kathryn married at Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire in 1972, Peter M. Raffell. She studied for a Fine Art Degree at University of Suffolk, specialising in traditional figurative portraiture mixed with a more lively re-interpretation of pattern and form. Her recent work investigates and captures the intensity of the gaze which also explores ways to creatively build layers that shape the forms, exposing the under-layers of earlier painting that marry together to portray tone, shape and pattern across the surface of the canvas. She has exhibited at The Atrium, University Campus Suffolk; Aldeburgh Cinema Gallery; Waterfront Gallery; Art Show at Pretty’s Solicitors, Ipswich; Firstsite Gallery, Colchester; Holywells Creatives at Holywells Park, Arlington’s brasserie, Museum Street, Ipswich and elsewhere.
