After graduating with her Master's in Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield in the UK, Kate decided to stay in Sheffield. It's the largest creative community outside of London in the UK and provides Kate with a creative community and exhibition opportunities. Kate has been showing in Sheffield, in the UK, and internationally for almost a year now after a break from exhibiting since graduating with her BA in Fine Art in 2011.
She studied at Birmingham City University, England for her BA in Fine Art and discovered her interest in the dynamics and contexts associated with space throughout her work there. Extending this into the social sciences has opened up her practice to new explorations.
Exploring psychological and cultural permutations of space guides the focus of my practice.
When making work I think about how changing the context of space can relocate it into a new spectrum of reference.
My work is deeply embedded in the appropriation of images and material. I see this as a kind of recycling of possible meaning that touches on both the personal and the cultural.
The work is influenced by popular culture and Pop Art and questions of representation while breaking things down and rebuilding them in a somewhat surreal vision.
The work engages with drawing, printmaking, and digital practices.
