IMG_4201 copyKatie Glaskin is a West Australian anthropologist, painter, and printmaker. As an undergraduate Katie studied art and anthropology, and as an anthropologist she has worked with Kimberley Aboriginal people on their native title claims. Her experiences working with Indigenous Australians have profoundly shaped how she thinks about history and place, and have influenced her use of landscape painting to explore and express emotional states.

In her current work, Katie draws on historical images of the thylacine to explore themes of loss, endangerment, and extinction.
