About Catriona Pollard

Catriona Pollard sits uniquely across both in business and art. She is an acclaimed contemporary fibre artist, speaker, author and CEO of PR Agency CP Communications. She has first-hand experience in moving from unknown to expert. She started her PR business with nothing (not even a computer) in the sunroom of her rented apartment. She had to figure out how she could become a well-recognised expert in PR to drive sales for her fledgling business.
Her transformation to an international speaker, popular media commentator and leader of a highly successful PR and Social Media Agency has been an incredible journey which she openly shares through her writing and speaking. Her book From Unknown To Expert has been used by thousands of people to become highly paid and sought after experts and thought leaders.

After experiencing burn out, she uncovered her inner artist and now also weaves stunning sculptural works from found organic material.
Her sculptural works are featured nationally in galleries, high end design spaces and private collections and are described as emotionally-authentic, uniquely contemporary, raw and visually stunning.
She is gifted with the ability to see the extraordinary in the ordinary. With a deep connection to the natural world around her, she uses nature to connect with people that goes beyond physical beauty, and touches them in a personal and profound way. See her work at The Art of Weaving.
