Kate is an artist and textile designer currently based in the Lake District. Influenced by the everyday, she is inspired by travel and experiencing different cultures. Working between textile projects and immersing herself in her studio painting abstract expressions of her travels, mundane experiences and feelings.
She is inspired by her surroundings and how individuals interact within their own environments. Kate draws and paints her thoughts to help convert these ideas into woven and printed pieces. Her work is draws from the Cumbrian landscape, emotional responses and architectural detail. She's currently working on a project focussing on emotions and how the chemical balance within the body truly affect how you see your environment.
Kate has worked in Italy and London with Missoni Home and with great British design brands Nina Campbell and Bluebellgray.
‘Colour and texture are central to my practice - helping me to express myself!’ After traveling to the other side of the world, Kate is re-immersing herself in the UK, exploring her location, mapping and painting to create her lifestyle textile collections.
