Catherina von Isenburg

Catherina has taken inspiration from her childhood years spent in other countries such as Africa, India and various parts of Asia. She gained a degree in textiles from Winchester School of Art, after which, she went on to do a short course in embroidery. It was the embroidery course where Catherina began to explore the possibilities of the three dimensional and introduced more structural elements to her work. With her love of textiles and drawing Catherina later gained an MA in Illustration at the Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge. She has exhibited her work in numerous places within the UK including the V&A museum of childhood.


TEXTILE PRACTICE
Catherina enjoys delving in to a child like imagination within her work where things can have numerous meanings. She enjoys playing with the curiosity that children often have in their discovery of everything around them, and introducing elements such as spy holes to another little world contained within a box or inviting people to open the lid of a desk to discover what’s inside. She uses various medium to accomplish her work. It can be both two and three dimensional.
