After living and working in Somerset for 21 years, Kate has returned to her home county of Devon. She is inspired by nature and mythology to create bold and dynamic glass and ceramic mosaic artworks.
“Throughout the years I have used various techniques to make my work, such as using the edge of strips of stained glass and setting them indirectly to show the streaks found in the glass. Another technique is using the grout as a design element, as if I am “drawing in grout.
More recently I have been making mosaic wall sculptures, exploring form through various sculptural techniques – using wire, cement board, plaster and polystyrene, and decorating with a mosaic skin. Most of the works are birds or moths in flight.”
