About Kathleen

Kathleen Kershaw is an emerging set and costume designer with a fluid and responsive process. She is driven by a love of sharing stories and seeks to build emotive worlds that draw the audience and performers together.

Originally from Canberra, Kathleen spent a number of years travelling abroad before arriving in Sydney for study. Now she bounces between Sydney and Canberra and is excited to continue traveling and working both around Australia and the globe.

While at NIDA Kathleen was the costume designer for NIDA’s production of Picnic at Hanging Rock, set and costume designer for Prem Patr, and production and costume designer for Sophisticated Dingo’s The Job I Took as part of the Triple J Unearthed NIDA Music Video Competition.
