“After a long period abroad, my return to New Zealand provoked a newfound appreciation for my environment, the formation and idiosyncrasies of the landscape: permanent in a broader sense, yet in a constant state of flux. As much as we desire to control it geographically, politically and socially, our landscape is always changing - particularly dependant on our own physical and emotional perspectives. It is never static.”

Kate has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from Dunedin School of Art, and spent two years studying furniture making in Madrid. She has works in private collections in New Zealand, Australia and Spain.
