Kate an Australian artist, with a background in textile design, makes richly patterned and decorative linocuts of native birds and flowers. She 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. And does her printing on an 1880’s Columbian Press at the Australian Print Workshop in Fitzroy where she had a Collie Print Trust Emerging Victorian Printmaker Scholarship in 2005.

All Kate’s colour linocuts are reduction prints. Multi coloured prints are produced by carving 2 blocks for all the colours used. More of the printing surface is removed after each colour has been printed.
