Katja Abbott studied graphic design and worked as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator, editor and project manager in the publishing industry for many years. To fulfil her desire to engage in hands-on art-making, she is currently studying a degree in Visual Arts through UNISA.
In a world where the conflict between nature and technology is ever present, Katja explores the effects of this on both humans and animals. Her source of inspiration is the enigmatic and silent realm of the dreamtimeand the unconscious. Images that exist on the periphery of our vision and reason emerge to reveal itself through her art.
