Since graduating with a Master of Animation, Games and Interactivity, Katie has exhibited work in various Australian galleries and has undertaken workshops overseas.
Katie’s background in animation has seen her practice progress from digital screen based work to kinetic sculpture. Through the illusion of movement, she creates ‘time based sculpture’.
“My greatest achievement has been travelling to Svalbard in the Arctic Circle to undertake an artist residency.
“RMIT helped prepare me for my career by helping me learn to work independently. You have to be the driving force in your own creative endavours.
“I also learnt how to see a project from concept, through to production and completion. Articulating or pitching a creative idea is a critical skill.
“A highlight of my studies was having access to a comprehensive range of animation facilities that are hard to re-create in a home environment. The course allows for a lot of creative freedom and collaboration.
“Working in any creative field is hard work, there’s no set path and you have to generate your own opportunities. However, it’s worth it as you do have a lot of freedom in your life.”
