Kathryn makes this line drawing come alive with her mastery of the pencil medium. I would frame this work in a simple light wood frame and hang it in a room with soft grey walls. A large modular sofa, also in a soft grey, placed on a plush, custom wool and silk blend pile rug in teal. A few organic shaped ottomans in a faded ochre-coloured floral fabric and a couple of Insula cocktail tables from Erik Jørgensen in black aluminium.

Kathryn’s use of pencil on her Yellow-Tailed Cockatoo creates a naïve, playful feel. This artwork would feel at home in a heavily textured, perhaps even wallpapered, slightly eclectic interior.
