About Katharina

Katharina Rapp has a problem with reality. This is possibly due to her growing up in post-war Germany, where life was grim. Being an imaginative child, she kept herself sane by day-dreaming of a better world.

A lifetime later, she is still at it: turning negativity on its head. Only now this happens on canvas.

Her oil paintings have found homes in countries as diverse as Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, UK, South Africa, USA and Australia.

Katharina's images have found pride of place on wine and champagne bottles, on the covers of poetry and essay collections, fabrics, wrapping paper, and other forms of merchandise. Her images were the inspiration for the 'Everyday Goddess' boxed sets (created in Australia), for use by psychologists in therapeutic sessions.
