Originally from Berlin, Germany, Kat left a predictable career in banking to move with her husband to Leicester, UK. She combined her previous love for capturing a moment in time through photography with her newfound freedom as she explored her new environment. She began a new, unpredictable life of creative work. She enrolled in the HNC photography program at Leicester College and will graduate in September 2018. In the past she worked with ERA theatre, which had provided her with a phenomenal opportunity to photograph and engage with unique, creative people. Kat won first prize in the International Student Photo Contest in Missouri in April 2014.
