Frank Abruzzese, cofounder Cow House Studios, Wexford, Ireland

I’ve known of Cathy’s practice for years and had been looking for a way to work with her for some time. Recently, we ran a residency called ‘How to Flatten a Mountain’ and it was our good fortune that Cathy was able to run a day-long workshop with our resident artists. Cathy was a fantastic facilitator and the artists were drawn to her ideas. She spent the morning speaking about her project in Hollywood Forest and related ecological issues. In the afternoon she took us into our own forest and met with each participant individually. It was evident by the work produced that Cathy had a significant impact on many of the artists. Without hesitation, I would recommend Cathy and happily invite her back for future projects.
