Kate is a local Canberra artist who was imported from Melbourne many years ago. Her artistic practice explores the pluralities within public space, with a focus on the invisible barriers to accessibility and empowerment in public realms. Photomedia based, she creates photomontages either in the darkroom, or pasted up on the street or in the gallery. Kate has exhibited internationally and across Australia, and was most recently commissioned by the ACT Legislative Assembly to create a public work.
