Cathy graduated from NCAD In 2014. Her work has been exhibited at Sculpture in Context and the RDS Student Art Awards. She has work included in the OPW collection.

Previously Cathy qualified as a horticulturalist from the National Botanic Gardens. Her work is influenced by elements of the natural world. Cathy is interested in the relationship found between the tools that cultivate the land, and the plants that subsequently grow there. The work is derived from morphing elements of these forms. The idea is further enhanced by her choice of surface treatments, reflecting the comparisons found in plant lichens and metallic rusts, referencing both decay and renewal.
