katharine lightfoot exhibition
20 – 23 November 2016
10am – 5.30pm
Katharine Lightfoot has an exciting exhibition of new paintings at The Great Barn in November. The pretty location and stunning large interior of The Great Barn perfectly compliments Katharine’s large oil paintings. Her last solo show in 2009 in Dover Street, London was a great success.
Inspired by the beautiful Dartmoor landscape, Katharine paints sheep, cattle, landscapes, and seascapes of the South Hams coastline.

Katharine Lightfoot – Artist
Katharine Lightfoot, born in 1972, graduated from the University of Plymouth with a degree in Fine Art, and has lived and worked as an artist in Devon for the last sixteen years. Painting primarily large canvases in oil, she portrays the landscape as being both breathtaking yet hostile, though without narrative content.
Inspired by the moorland animals and their ability to survive the elements, Katharine paints freely to evoke movement and energy within her subjects, emphasising the light contrast, and ever changing moods of the moor.
Katharine has also recently produced a series of moody, dramatic seascapes of the North Cornish and South Devon coast.
