Katie Watchorn graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 2014. Rooted in the materiality of rural farming, Katie makes sculptural work which closely mirrors activities undertaken in rural Ireland, specifically relating to agriculture. She splits her time between Dublin and her family farm in rural Co. Carlow.

She received the Overall Winner in the Visual Arts Category of the 2014 Irish Undergraduate Awards and the Hotron Recent Graduate Award 2016, selected by Annie Fletcher. She spent much of 2019 on residency in IMMA as part of their 1000 programme. She is currently a resident at Fire Station Artist's Studios until 2022. Katie is the recipient of a number of Arts Council Bursaries, including the Next Generation Award, 2018, which aims to support emerging artists of promise in Ireland at a pivotal stage in their career. Recent solo shows include Zero Grazing at Studio Pavilion as part of Glasgow International 2021, and BalehomeBalehome in VISUAL Carlow, 2018.
