18 years in the Animation industry as an Art Director, Design and Layout artist and earlier as an Special Effects Animator. Over this time, Kate worked on feature films for Warner Brothers, Disney and Dreamworks, and more recently on numerous Children’s Television series for BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Five.
Kate continues to work part-time in the industry whilst dedicating more time to her own studio practice which she took up again, in 2009. Primarily a painter, Kate has increasingly spent time re-aquainting herself with the world of printmaking. Through membership of the London Print Studio and attending several printmaking courses at City Lit, Kate has rediscovered the joy of the printed ‘mark’, refreshing old skills and learning new techniques. In 2014 Kate was a key holder for 6 months at the Seacourt Print workshop in Bangor, Co. Down, where she mostly worked with lithography, particularly waterless.
