Kathryn Maple collected £10,000 for winning the 29th Sunday Times Watercolour Competition - the contest she won in 2014. The competition, celebrating “excellence and originality in the medium”, is considered the largest and most prestigious showcase of contemporary watercolour painting in the UK.
Kathryn, awarded a BA(Hons) degree in Fine Art Printmaking from the University of Brighton in 2011, now works in a studio in South London.
Speaking about her award, Kathryn said: “My feet are still going like the clappers; never would I have thought I could possibly win again. The Times Watercolour Competition shows incredible diversity in the medium of Watercolour. It is always exciting to be in the show and to see how other Artists are reinventing and pushing watercolour in new ways. I am extremely thankful to the sponsors Smithson & Williamson and to Parker Harris who run competitions the whole year round.”
