Katrina McPherson is award-winning screen dance artist, whose creative, scholarly and educational work is at the forefront of the international field.

Katrina is one of the first generation of hybrid screen dance artists, whose single, multi-screen and on-line works have been presented at venues and festivals world-wide. Since the early 1990’s, Katrina has often been awarded funding from public and private organisations, institutions and arts councils, including being a recipient of the prestigious Creative Scotland Award of £25,000 for an individual artist in 2002.
