Kate is a silkscreen obsessive, currently creating from her makeshift print studio in north west London. Her early studies in Printed Textiles fuelled her inherent love of colour, shape & pattern which continue to provide the base to her works.
The kind of printing she is inspired by is process led and utilises chance, hiccups & the happy accidents that this unorthodox approach throws her way. This informal, playful & explorative manner reflects on her practice as predominantly intuitive & self taught.
In essence she is known for her music based artworks, predominantly for her long standing relationship with ‘The Chemical Brothers’.
Alongside her print based artworks & the more commercial illustration side to her practice, she is also an educator. Most recently at Bath School of Art.
She currently collaborates with fellow artist William Luz under the guise of ‘Touching Elbows’. This title reflects an ongoing collaborative approach to image making, craft, colour & form.
