About Kitty

I was born in Sussex, and worked as a screenprinter in North Wales and a Commercial artist in London before moving to Scotland in 1982. I learned to etch at Peacock Printmakers, Aberdeen, in 1986.  In 1997 I moved with my husband, painter David Watt, to a remote croft in the Highlands of Scotland, where we keep cows, get our electricity from a windmill and fuel from our peat bank.  Leading the good life!
