Katherine Filice’s works explore human relationships through symbolism and intricate ink lines. Filice said, “Exhibiting my artwork at ArtRooms London was truly a life-changing experience. I am thrilled to now have this opportunity to share my work with people in my local community who have been so incredibly supportive of this adventure.”
