Katy is a visual artist based at The Newbridge Project in Newcastle upon Tyne. Her work uses collage, drawing, painting and installation to explore potential futures. She manipulates scale and imagery to traverse the line between fact and fiction, creating prospective dystopian environments.

In 2014 she completed the Generator residency in Venice, Italy before exhibiting at both Baltic 39 and Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in They Used to Call it the Moon.
