Kate’s screenprints use her drawings, paintings and found objects as start points. The most recent prints are based on her watercolours of flowers, pots and nature study using a technique of subtle layering of transparent inks to create painterly marks and tertiary colours where the inks overlay.
Nature Study - Seasons is a quartet of screenprints, inspired by mid-century School Prints and vintage educational posters. Using watercolour studies of individual natural treasures, Kate develops a poster design with hand-drawn type. Colour separations are painted by hand on overlays to make a separate screen for each colour - usually 9 or 10 colours.
An ongoing series of screenprints inspired by the places we love.
Kate likes to capture the essence of place by drawing natural treasures scavenged from the area - little momentous of happy times and favourite haunts. Every print starts out as a watercolour, which the Kate draws colour separations by hand to make separate screens for each colour - maybe 10 or 12 colours.
