Kate completed her studies in illustration at Manchester university and obtained her degree in 1994. Continuing her MA at Kingston, she stumbled upon a new medium for screen printing that has now become her passion and love. Since then, this has resulted in numerous years working as a prosperous screen printer and acquiring a substantial clientele for both illustration and individual displays at galleries and exhibitions.
In the artisan printmaking arena, Kate’s world is firmly fixed, and it is in this space that she feels deeply rooted. Here, she creates her digital multi-layered images by juxtaposing vibrant color swathes, hand-drawn sketches, found objects, and photographic elements.
She beautifully captures the soul and atmosphere of each city through her urban landscapes. In her artwork, she brings to life the heat and urban traffic of New York, the narrow streets and cafe culture of Paris, the iconic and statuesque landmarks of London, and the canals with the luminescent vibrancy of sunlight over Venice.
The connection between Love, memories, and cities is a feeling that exists among all of us and will always be intertwined in her work. In every restaurant, street, or building on all continents, there exists a monument to our personal memories, encounters, and experiences. It is evident why we desire to preserve these memories through captivating art images.
Kate, based in Edinburgh, has her work widely used in the design, editorial, and advertising sectors.
