Kate studied at Chelsea School of Art and Goldsmiths’ College in London, and has subsequently carried out a practice-based PhD in Sculpture. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and gained awards from the Arts Council (ACE) and the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Her work focuses on an amalgamation of art and anthropology, which has stemmed from living and working in Kenya. This experience has been the main influence on her life and work, for art practice, research and lecturing. Her work is very much process led, reflecting themes of mortality through fragility, construction/ deconstruction.
