Kate is inspired by her love of nature especially flowers,  birds, moths and butterflies. Her prints have distinctive  botanical and organic images developed in the style of  Textile Designs. She creates prints with floral, geometric  patterns and bold colours intertwined with local landscapes  of Cambridgeshire, Spain and Norfolk. She works in a variety of Printmaking techniques including  Linocut, Chine Collé, Collagraph, Screenprint and Collage.  Often her works combine more than one technique  making her collection of handmade prints truly unique.
