Katie Soze specialises in transforming everyday images into extraordinary artwork. Having graduated from Huddersfield University with a degree in Fashion Design and now based in Sheffield, she has expanded her interests into the field of illustration and photography, capturing scenes of everyday magic in her own unique and visually breathtaking way.
Her latest project has been two years in the making, involving her photographing snippets of her everyday life. From walking home from work to taking trips to the laundrette, she believes art is to be found all around us, saying that “you never know what is waiting for you just around the corner.” In the past, she has experimented with a variety of different styles and forms, and more recently has been working on a project which, inspired by a dislike of the misleading term “plus-size model”, she has dubbed “fat naked photos”. You can find the images, as well her interesting personal take on life-modelling on her Tumblr site.
Katie’s work has the air of something fresh and exciting because she appears to use every excuse to experiment with her medium, developing projects by first playing around with ideas. She doesn’t seem scared of adventure, making her work varied and interesting, always innovative and with her style constantly evolving.
You can currently see some of Katie’s latest work exhibited at the Urban Outfitters store in Meadowhall, Sheffield in conjunction with Moonko, where you can also get your hands on some of her beautiful prints.
