Katerina Porter is a sculptor with 40 years' experience. She works directly in clay without preliminary drawing and always from a model. She has exhibited at the Royal Academy and many other leading galleries across England, Belgium and France.
Born in Moscow where her father was a British journalist she was brought to England by her Russian mother at the beginning of the Second World War. She gained a place at the Slade, but took up a scholarship at the Architectural Association. After graduating, she worked at the office of the structural engineer Felix Samuely and designed a house for Sir Billy Williams, then chairman of the Arts Council. Encouraged by the painter Sir Matthew Smith and the Sculptor Ossip Zadkine, she took time off to study art in Paris. Her marriage to Ivor Porter, a member of the Foreign Service, took her abroad to Cyprus, to Strasbourg, India, Geneva, and to Senegal. She had always drawn and at one time painted. Upon their return to London, she began to sculpt.
