Kay Pittelkow, Kay, educated as a scientist, worked with medical devices: heart pacemakers, bone growth stimulators, ear implants and lastly and most challenging, the Victor Change artificial heart. All through her professional life, Kay has maintained a vivid interest in the arts and developed skill and knowledge through the Sydney college of the Arts and workshops run by international artists. During this period, she carved sculptures designed for the urban landscape but later focussed on art jewellery - still with a sculptural element. In 2018 she returned to her love of sculpture mentoring under a local Newcastle sculptor and began entering regional shows (see below). Her residential scaled sculpture continues to be sold from her market stall (StudioKY) in the Hunter and Newcastle regions.
