Katusha strives to find the ideal form from each piece of stone; to exploit to the utmost the inherent qualities of that stone and release the magic worked by millions of years of nature. She sources beautiful stones rarely seen in Britain, from expeditions to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Her craft is to create sculpture that satisfies the eye with balance and harmony, and perfect finished surfaces that allow the work to absorb light and come to life.
Katusha was born and raised in Hong Kong and lived in Australia for 20 years. Since moving to London she has studied portraiture and figurative sculpture at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art, London. In 2005 she became an Associate of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and was recently elected a Member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen. Her work is in collections in the UK, USA, Australia, China, Macau, Malta, Hong Kong, Norway and India.
