Cathy Brickhill is an Auckland based 3D sculptural, embroidery artist. Cathy creates delicate stitched forms with machine embroidery through hours of sewing, building up networks of stitched layers that are then sculpted into textile art forms. Cathy studied Fashion at Unitec focusing on pattern making and garment construction / tailoring. She has received a number of awards for her work, including the 2018 Corban Arts’ Estate People’s Choice.
Cathy draws inspiration from New Zealand flora and fauna. Due to the way the art is created, no two pieces are ever identical giving each piece its own unique quality.
