Trained as a landscape architect and experienced as a graphic designer and publisher, Kate began stitching her way into small craft shows and, soon after, art galleries over 30 years ago while living in a small town in northern Ontario.
Kate has since won awards for her meticulously detailed renderings of everything from rusty trucks to magnificent landscapes, street scenes to fruit bowls, abstracts to domestica (yes, even the kitchen sink!).
Kate is also an experienced picture framer and workshop instructor. She lived in Nelson for twenty five years, published four books, raised two sons, owned a downtown gallery, offered interior design consultations and even worked in real estate.
In December, 2019, Kate moved to Comox on Vancouver Island where she is getting acquainted with her new and inspiring environment and incorporating it into her work.
