Charmed by curiosity Kittie is both ‘funny ha-ha’ and ‘funny peculiar’. A psychologist turned avant-garde artist she advocates self-expression through eccentricity and idiosyncrasy. She is a successful writer, performer, producer and personal coach with a fitting oeuvre of unusual achievment.
A dainty figure of derring-do she is widely lauded by comic and glamour luminaries for her playful satire, exuberant vitality and sharp wit. With quirky ‘historical chic’, whimsical adventurism and feline mischief, she purposefully provokes the raising of eyebrows promoting the beauty of individualism and importance of perspective – in both art and life.
Producing national sell-out award winning shows, performing internationally, writing professionally and as a life-long artists’ muse, she also nurtures self-confidence in others through her unique insights (see Purrfit ).
With an academic research background in parapsychology and as a collector of antiques and curiosities, she studies anomalous experience and appropriates old items to make new oddities – in celebration of the strange, the awkward and the forgotten ideas that shaped today. Also considered a key figure in the British burlesque resurgence, she is an advocate of traditional British burlesque and the founder of the inclusive Ministry of Burlesque*.
“A committed, diligent writer and sparkling storyteller.”
Karen Gregor, Producer – BBC R4
“Visionary. Her shows are an elegant masquerade of the past and an homage to taste and irony.”
La Repubblica Delle Donne, Italy
“Absolutely fascinating… possibly one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever met in my life.”
