About Katherine

Katherine Bowman's work is strongly influenced by both nature and the history of art. She has a particular interest in how we imbue an object with meaning and the consequent relationship the object has with the body it adorns.  Katherine’s first degree was a Bachelor of Arts with a Double Major in Fine Art History from the University of Melbourne from 1988 -1991. She then completed a degree with Honours in Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT in 2001. In 2002, Katherine received an Australian Post Graduate Award and completed a Master of Arts through RMIT.

Katherine is a founding member of Northcity4, an artist run initiative that supports the Australian contemporary jewellery community by providing workshop space and education programs. Her work has been reviewed in The Age, Dumbo Feather and Craft Culture, the magazine of Craft Victoria and in 2005 she was recognised by the Monument magazine as one of Australia’s top 40 design graduates. 

Katherine has taught at RMIT since 2011 in the Gold and Silversmith department, within the School of Art.
