Katt is an artist, poet and creative facilitator. Her work is playful and nostalgic, often with an unexpected twist. It explores the relation between reality and fiction through self-reflection, memory and narrative. She combines digital and traditional art mediums with poetry, play, and storytelling.
She is Chapel Arts Studios, Artist in Residence (CAS:AIR) for 2022. Her arts council funded residency project, UNDEREARTH, was a digital environmentally-focused project exploring what happens beneath the ground as spring approaches. Through a series of interactive workshops, and with the assistance of a mentee artist, she taught creative coding, animation and storytelling to pupils from primary schools in Andover, Hampshire. The project culminated in a multi-sensory exhibition that combined augmented reality, projection, animation and sound art.
Katt’s poetry and illustrations have appeared in and on the cover of various magazines, journals and anthologies, the most recent being The Lost Art of Staring into Fires by Valley Press.
Katt has a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing and an MA in Digital Media Practice. She is an expert in storytelling which is at the heart of her practice and the focus of her academic research. All of her work begins as a story and her role as an artist involves finding the right medium to share it.
