Katthy was born in Italy in 1972 and emigrated to Australia when she was 4 years old. She initially studied photography in Sydney but now works in a number of art forms, including performance, photography, video, installation, drawing and sculpture. Her artwork presents personal experiences as a metaphor for human experiences. In 2000 Katthy won the Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship and in 2003 was awarded an Australia Council Visual Arts/Craft Board studio residency in Milan, Italy.
Katthy has been invited to participate in the Hill End Artist in Residence Program by Bathurst Regional Art Gallery while the gallery is hosting Katthy Cavaliere: suspended moment an exhibition exploring the evolution of her work since 1993. This exhibition is a Goulburn Regional Art Gallery exhibition, with its tour managed by Museums and Galleries NSW.
