From 1987 to 2011 she taught Fine Arts for TAFE NSW, Illawarra Institute at Wollongong West, Goulburn and Southern Highlands campuses. Kathryn continues to teach workshops and short courses privately.

Kathryn lives and works in Wollongong. Recurring themes in her work are sourced from her immediate environment and include vernacular architecture, trees, things to do with the sea and Port Kembla and other ideas and subjects around domestic life.
