Cath O'Brien

Make Like a Tree nurtures creativity in children. Cath O'Brien is the founder of Make Like a Tree and recently opened the Make Room studio space at Lake House Arts Centre. Make Room is a space designed for children to easily access art materials and tools. In the Make Room, Cath supports children to explore their creativity through drawing, printing, collecting, assembling, sculpting, building and much more. There is a focus on using found objects and recycled materials sourced from the local environment.

Cath sees her work with children as an exchange and her own art practice is very much inspired by the children she shares her studio with.  

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." Pablo Picasso
