Sebbene l'arte 3D abbia sempre svolto un ruolo centrale nella sua produzione creativa, negli ultimi anni i dettagliati disegni a matita di Cath sono stati esposti in mostre e sono stati acquistati e pubblicati da aziende ed organizzazioni, tra cui Nike, Adidas, The New York Times, The Economist ed Aston Martin.
Ha vinto premi dalla Society of "Dimensional Ilustrators", Yorkshire Arts e dal Crafts Council.
Anche la Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, le Dean Clough Galleries e la Piece Hall di Halifax hanno mostrato il suo lavoro.
