Katie Cuddon studied at Glasgow School of Art and then The Royal College of Art before becoming a Lipman Research Fellow in Ceramic Sculpture at Newcastle University. This was followed by a Sainsbury Scholarship in Sculpture and Drawing at the British School at Rome and the inaugural Ceramics Fellowship at Camden Art Centre. Katie’s solo exhibitions include Spanish Lobe, Camden Arts Centre (2011) and Pontoon Lip, a collaborative exhibition with Celia Hempton at Cell Projects (2014). Her work has been acquired by numerous private collections and the Arts Council of England Collection and was recently on show in the ACE Touring exhibition, Breaking the Mould: Sculpture by Women Since 1945 which opened at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in May 2021 and has since travelled to Lakeside Arts, University of Nottingham; The Lewinsky Gallery and The Box, Plymouth; Ferens Art Gallery, Hull; and the New Art Gallery, Walsall.

Hettie Judah is chief art critic on the British daily paper The i, a regular contributor to The Guardian’s arts pages, and a columnist for Apollo magazine. She writes for Frieze, Art Quarterly, Art Monthly, ArtReview and other publications with ‘art’ in the title. Following publication of her 2020 study on the impact of motherhood on artists’ careers, in 2021 she worked with a group of artists to draw up the manifesto How Not To Exclude Artist Parents, now available in 15 languages. Recent books include How Not To Exclude Artist Mothers (and other parents) and Lapidarium: The Secret Life of Stones. She is currently working on a book and Hayward Touring exhibition (opening at Arnolfini in Bristol, March 2024) among other things. In 2022, together with Jo Harrison, Hettie co-founded the Art Working Parents Alliance – a supportive network and campaigning group for curators, academics, gallerists, technicians, educators and others working in the arts.
