Originally from Bristol, Kate completed her BA in Graphic Design at the University of the West of England in 2006. During her degree she focused on book making and print, developing skills such as book binding, type setting and screen printing. She explored ideas of narrative and alternative ways of presenting stories and books, working intensively with paper.
After graduating, Kate worked as a photographer and freelance graphic designer, photographing people and places and creating printed designs for branding and marketing. In 2014 Kate moved to the quiet countryside of the Welsh Borders with her family. Living rurally helped her to reconnect with nature and find her creative curiosity again. She decided to take her practise in a different and more personal direction, establishing herself as an artist and developing the sculptures she creates today.
Kate lives and works just outside the Welsh town of Hay-on-Wye and has exhibited her work nationally and internationally, her first being the ‘Prize Exhibition’ at the RBSA Gallery in Birmingham in 2015. Kate has work in public and private collections around the world and in 2016 became a member of Design Nation.
