Katie is a sculptor currently experimenting with the non-traditional contemporary material,
Polystyrene Backer Rod, an industrial material used for insulation.
Her work is centred around ideas, thoughts and sensory reactions to notions of restriction and
boundaries. She takes an interest in the ways in which form, weight and tension, breaking points
and boundaries can be explored through manipulation of her chosen materials.
She focuses on exploring the connection between her material and its industrial, working class background. She is beginning to take her sculptures to external industrial settings, and
experiment with creating site specific work.
