Kathy Servian

Kathy Servian’s sunset view from her home outside of Auckland City, New Zealand.

Spurred by an overwhelming urge to create, New Zealand writer Kathy Servian achieved an Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design, followed up by a twenty year career in the fashion industry and a crafting habit Martha Stewart would be proud of.

She then discovered a love of teaching – passing on all those year of learned skills – design, pattern-making, sewing, Art Clay Silver, screen-printing and machine embroidery.

Ready for a new challenge, Kathy decided to see if she could make the transition from ‘telling’ a good story, to ‘writing’ one.

The project turned into a passion for writing. A strong believer in the technical being as important as the creative, Kathy is currently completing a Diploma in Applied Writing – which she squeezes in between family life and teaching. (And yes, she did complete the novel – it’s currently in editing).
