Catherine studied at St Martins and the Royal College of Art followed by an MA in English Literature at UCL.

Since then she has exhibited at Art Basel Miami Beach, the London Design Festival, Guest Projects and Design Miami Basel. In September 2010 the publication of her graphic novel adaptation of Heart of Darkness was met with critical acclaim including the Observer’s Graphic Novel of the Month. She has produced live film events around London, including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the National Film Theatre.

Catherine uses film, sculpture and mise-en-scene devices to reconstruct physical environments that are disrupted by psychological, intangible phenomena. Current projects look at the emotional manifestations of crime and guilt upon public and private space.

In upcoming graphic novel 2x2 the banality of corruption affects the physical structure of a city and in recent drawings of crime scenes and police violence the images act as subjective evidence of horror.

She has a special interest in drawing, both in terms of content and materiality, and the relationship between literature and illustration.

She is currently a Tutor in Visual Research at the Royal College of Art in London and Senior Lecturer in Illustration/Lektor at Konstfack, Stockholm.
