PRESS FOR ‘SUNDAY’S CHILD’

"Magnificently unsettling… beautiful and extraordinary…There is, I think, real daring here, as well as empathy and imagination. What would you have done? she quietly asks: an age-old question, but still an enduringly good one."
– Rachel Cooke Observer (full article here)

"A beautifully drawn and very melancholic book."
– Strong Words

"Katt’s visual reimagining of that time…has more than enough texture and terror in it to make an impact."
– Herald

"Tender yet incisive...‘Sunday’s Child’ considers what we choose to remember and to forget."
– Paul Gravett, Varoom Magazine (full article here)

"An extraordinary piece of work"

TeAching / Facilitating


I am currently Senior Lecturer, and second year lead tutor, in illustration at University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. I am also an Associate Lecturer in illustration at Camberwell College of Arts.


I have previously taught illustration and communication design at a range of institutions, including The American University of Richmond in London, Ravensbourne University, Arts University Bournemouth, and the Royal College of Art.

I was also a co-founder of illinformed at the Royal College of Art in 2013. illinformed is a student led platform aiming at expanding on contemporary illustration discourse, within and outside the college through lively and inclusive discussions and workshops. To keep up to date with the latest news and events from this years' organisers visit illinformed here.

German-English Illustrator and Artist based in Brighton, UK

My work explores how illustration can be used as an active tool for understanding, interpreting and re-evaluating dominant narratives and discourse about historical events. How can illustration add to our understanding of history, how can it challenge it, and what is the value of providing alternative viewpoints to the mainstream?

I am interested in exploring and highlighting the ways in which history is recorded, suppressed, remembered and distorted. I have become particularly interested in how meaning and underlying power structures contained within archival records can be interpreted through the act of drawing. Often working with archival artefacts and personal testimony, I create narrative sequences and visual essays that explore my own relationship to history.
