24 September 2014
25-year old Kathryn Maple wins first prize in The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2014 for 'Fat Boy's Diner'.
Kathryn graduated from The Prince’s Drawing School, here at Trinity Buoy Wharf, in December 2013, and continues to draw and paint in a live/work space in East London. Kathryn comments on her prize winning work: “The diner sits amongst the container city that is Trinity Buoy Wharf – a place which is in a constant state of change. I have tried to capture the higgledy-piggledy and slightly off balance part that nature plays in this fascinating place.”
Louis Wise, Sunday Times on 2014 winner: "Maple’s astonishing work looks as if it was conceived in the Deep South, but Fat Boy’s is, in fact, a cafe right by where she works, in Trinity Buoy Wharf. She even has lunch there sometimes. Maple, from Maidstone, Kent, is fond of the “odd and out of place in life”,
