Cato’s experience of battling discrimination has been the main catalyst for her work. Her experience of moving from a state school in London to a boarding school in Norfolk, and the contrast in city and rural life, propelled her to search for an outlet around experiencing racial discrimination. With a strong focus on the celebration of black culture, and by using her Afro-Caribbean heritage as an underlying stimulus, she uses her paintings to provoke conversations about race with those around her.
