Kate is also one of the founding members of Tiliqua Tiliqua. She has held down more jobs than Felix but is not prepared to commit these to paper (or screen). Her life changed with a BFA (Hons) from the National Art School, where she majored in printmaking. She is an over-consumer of art, wine, food and fibre and a reluctant wearer of sensible shoes.

‘The move to a new studio has initiated a shift in (not to mention a solid boot to the butt of) my artistic practice. I have allowed myself the freedom to play with the processes and media that fascinate me—rust, fibre, meditative hand-stitching, random markings. My recent works are a response to many inspirations: desert landscapes seen from the air, the marking insects make under tree bark, the traces left in sand by birds and crabs. The maps written by natural processes that are guiding me… somewhere.’
