Screen printer working in River Studios


About Katie

I create drawing-based silk screen prints. I am inspired by nature and love working with organic subject matter. I studied Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Barcelona, Spain. I specialised in screen printing and stone lithography at the Barcelona Arts and Crafts School "La Llotja". I have worked as a web developer, a teacher and a junior architect. I have a Bachelor of Science (Architecture) from the University of Sydney and a Postgraduate diploma in Web projects from ELISAVA, the Barcelona school of design and engineering. I love working with people and since arriving in Melbourne at the beginning of 2016 I have been establishing myself in Arts and Disability.

What attracted you to the space and what makes your studio suitable for your practice?

The space is fantastic. There is plenty of natural light and ventilation. I love that Breathe Architecture has carried out the conversion in a way which allows the character of the existing warehouse to be enjoyed. I also really like the diversity in artists and art forms at River Studios. It creates an enriched environment and great potential for creative exchange.
