This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From a studio in Silver Springs, Maryland, Katja Oxman creates elegant still life prints of porcelain vases and rich-toned wood furniture on Oriental rugs. Some of her themes also deal with birds and flight and have subtle references to air. Her work, reflective of a tranquil, interior world, is so detailed that she produces only two to three prints annually, and from these makes editions of 150 to 200. The objects have deeply personal meanings for the artist and are structured like tableaus.

Oxman was born in Munich, Germany, and grew up with the horrors of World War II. Her father was Russian and fled his homeland after fighting the Bolsheviks in the revolution, and her mother was a German who lost her citizenship because of marrying a Russian. In 1952, the family emigrated to the United States and settled in Rose Valley, a suburb of Philadelphia. The family atmosphere was one of culture with the parents instilling a love of classical music, literature, and poetry in their children.

Oxman studied art, especially the making of woodcuts, at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Then she went to Munich, her birth place, and studied for a year at the Academy before her acceptance at the Royal College in London, where she was one of fifteen students accepted in the School of Graphics graduate program. At the College, she took up etching, and began making aquatints depicting children's toys carefully arranged on an Oriental rug.
