Katrina Russell–Adams

A printmaker and visual artist based in southeast London, Katrina’s practice is deeply informed by the joyful clash of diversity, shapes, people and places in her surroundings.

Over the past few years, Katrina has seen her playful, bold work emerge in collaboration with other local artists onto both the streets and galleries of her native Peckham. Her work has flourished further afield too, with public and private commissions in her dynamic prints, murals and sculpture. Having graduated with a degree in Behavioural Sciences and with a successful career in social housing under her belt, Katrina took a break to bring up her three children.

Following an adult learning course in printmaking four years ago, Katrina launched a new career – this time in the visual arts. Her work continues to evolve; inspired by the history, architecture, colour and cultures of her surroundings – bold and seemingly simple shapes are used to create images and moving sculpture that draw viewers into their own journey of discovery. She is passionate about community initiatives and public accessibility to the arts.

In October 2019 Katrina became the 20th artist to join the Look Up roster, and we couldn’t be happier. We’re looking forward to showcasing her vibrant prints and introducing her broader practice to new audiences.
