Kate is an Australian artist specializing in limited edition colour linocuts. She uses native birds and flowers in her highly patterned and decorative prints.
She trained as a textile designer at the Central School of Art & Design in London and worked freelance for 6 years before migrating to Australia in 1990 with her young family.
Kate draws influence from Japanese woodblocks, Art Nouveau, the Arts & Crafts Movement and printmakers such as Margaret Preston.
She does all her drawing, designing and block carving in her Eltham studio. She prints on a Columbian press from the 1880’s at the Australian Print Workshop in Fitzroy where she had a Collie Print Trust Emerging Victorian Printmaker Scholarship in 2005.
