Kate is a sculptor, craftsman and collector based in the Welsh boarders. Using recycled materials she captures the delicate detail and beauty found in nature. Her work is influenced by plants, insects and found objects which are recreated as intricate, life-sized sculptures and arranged carefully into collections and dioramas.
"For me my work can be very nostalgic, taking me back to my childhood and the curiosity that fuelled my creativity. I like to use materials in a way that provokes this curiosity in the viewer too by leaving sections of the original object visible in the new sculpture. I want the sculptures to look real and not real at the same time inviting the viewer to consider details they may normally over look and stimulate curiosity for the made item and the real thing. My work aims to encourage curiosity in nature and promote an awareness of the environment. I want to bring those small, hidden and overlooked details into the public eye and encourage people to consider their importance in our eco-system."
