Katja Abbott

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 dark, silent realm of the dreamtime and the imagery that emerges from the unconscious.
