Hailing from a mix of Czech and Argentinean origins, Katia was born & raised in Geneva, Switzerland. She has been based in London (UK) since 2006 where for the last 10 years she worked as an independent choreographer and painter. From 2012 onward she became involved with a community centre and a care home developing projects in art for elderly people.
Her first animation film “Double Note” was made at home with felt tip pens and paper. It went on to be screened at festivals internationally and earned her a place on the Directing Animation MA at the National Film & Television School where she is studying until 2018.
Her mix of creative pursuits have always been tied to a deep rooted interest in narrative and sharing people’s stories.
