Katy Cole graduated with a BA Honours in Fine Art from Northumbria University in 2003 and currently works full time as an artist in Newcastle upon Tyne. She is based at The Newbridge Project, an artist led studio and exhibition space in Central Newcastle.

 Cole’s practice concerns the destructive face of nature, from violent storms to explosions in Space. Drawing insight from found images of such disasters she creates intricate illustrations and animations intended to capture the extraordinary beauty inherent in these violent forces.
