Kate works as both a creative consultant and sculptor finding that the two disciplines both stimulate and inform each other and where there are many obvious differences there are also many consistencies.
“ I love having the two sides to my creative output, although they can present completely different challenges I find that I’m looking for many parallel qualities in both arenas, seeking dynamic, refined forms with exacting finishes while still embracing the unforeseen or unknown, so it seems only natural that one will inform the other”
With over twenty years experience as a highly respected Creative Visual Consultant, Kate’s commercial work encompasses a wide range of projects for high profile clients including international retailers, hotels, restaurants, museums, independent brands, design companies and art consultants.
Delivering creative concepts and installations for site-specific projects, Kate has created showroom concepts, exhibition and gallery environments, large one-off retail installations and small showcase projects.
In response to a client’s brief, Kate is renowned for her strategic, creative and practical approach, producing compelling visual statements that communicate promotional messages while also clearly defining brand values. Possessing a unique combination of commercial understanding and planning skills together with highly creative thinking and imagination and a good understanding of fabrication, Kate enjoys the challenge of delivering creative solutions to agreed deadlines and budgets.
“Sculpting has always been a part of my life, it is my passion and over time has grown into an essential part of my creative expression.”
In contrast to the larger scale installation projects, her sculpture is a very personal and more intuitive expression of her own vision on a smaller and more intimate scale. Kate’s sculpture is based on a purity and simplicity of form and finish, creating sensual objects that beg to be touched. These very modern pieces are crafted using traditional skills and tools alongside some very contemporary materials and techniques.
Her instinctive appreciation of shape and form, coupled with a desire to enhance and celebrate the inherent qualities of the raw material, result in effortless, tactile and desirable objects.
