Kate is an artist and teacher – – with an interest in techie stuff too.
She did a textiles degree and worked in industry before teaching art and design technology in schools in Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
Kate left teaching in 2018 to go self-employed as an artist, and now spends her time creating new work, teaching workshops, giving talks, and fulfilling commissions. She also shows at a variety of events throughout the year.
Making art is Kate’s passion. She works predominantly in textiles producing a wide range of work from wildlife and landscapes through to unusual night sky inspired pieces embedded with fibre optic lighting. She calls them e-textiles.
Kate became known particularly for her Large Hadron Collider series first shown in 2012.
