‘I sometimes think of my craft the same way I see my life to come and my life gone thus far. A Dagwood sandwich not shy of a vast variety of adventurous condiment lashings. To stop the topple of my ‘Life sandwich’ I was endowed with the wooden skewer of creativity. To hold the bend in my ‘Sandwich of Art’ I need to know that the wooden skewer of life is rammed in good and tight.’

Katrina Rhodes




As a painter Rhodes in a kind of seclusion. She will allow herself to be described only as “a student of time and whimsy” who “never studied” art in an institution. Her work is of some self indulgence which she will freely admit, and would rather let the individual viewer of her work find their own prelude and relationship with her paintings.


‘Take a good bite, yet remember, chew it slowly’.
