Katie Soze

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.

About Georgie Beardmore

I’m Georgie, a Creative Writing masters student at the University of Sheffield. As might be expected from someone who studies creative writing, I love writing (I write a lot -seriously, a lot), and write a variety of fiction and non-fiction things for various online and printed publications. As well as fiction, I most enjoy writing about music, the arts and student living, but I've also written things about living abroad, travel and local projects and events, as well as waffling about whatever takes my fancy on my blog. I am also heavily involved in student radio; I've been part of Forge Radio (the University of Sheffield's student radio station) for nearly four years now, helping run the station over the last two first as Secretary and then as Assistant Station Manager. Every week I present my own weekly specialist folk music show 'What The Folk?' (the show is as pun-filled as its name would suggest), on which I aim to promote new and exciting folk musicians from across the UK, and this year I've also been a part of organising some gigs as part of 'Forge Presents...', Forge Radio's series of live music events. I'm incredibly passionate about both music and the arts, and so am really excited to be part of the Born In Britain campaign and the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent both Sheffield and the UK has to offer.
