HELLO, I AM KATE.

MY WORK IS REALLY COOL AND SO AM I. 

I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW. 

I AM A VISUAL ARTIST AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR CURRENTLY BASED PRAGUE. ORIGINALLY STUDYING BFA. FINE ART AND DESIGN IN IRELAND, FOLLOWED BY ART DIRECTION IN FASHION AT POLIMODA INSTITUTE IN ITALY.

FOR MY INSTALLATION ARTWORK IN THE CCAD SHOW LIMINAL I WAS AWARDED THE CIT REGISTARS DEVELOPMENT PRIZE, THE CIARÁN LANGFORD MEMORIAL BURSARY AWARD . I HAD A 6 MONTH RESIDENCY AT THE BACKWATER ARTISTS STUDIOS. SINCE GRADUATING I HAVE EXHIBITED THROUGHOUT IRELAND INCLUDING WORKS IN GROUP SHOWS IN THE SARAH WALKER GALLERY, THE LISMORE CASTLE ARTS AS WELL AS EXECUTING COMMISSIONS FOR THE CORK CITY COUNCIL AND WILLIAM CAVENDISH THE EARL OF BURLINGTON.

IN THE PAST I HAVE WORKED AT THE S T O L E N, AS A STUDIO MANAGER. LATER ART DIRECTOR AT B99 AGENCY, DUBAI AND PRODUCTION MANAGER AT PEPPERMINT DIGITAL. I HAVE KEPT MY FREELANCE FREEDOM DURING THE YEARS TO PRODUCE CREATIVE CONTENT FOR MY CLIENTS.

BEING THE “THE CREATOR”, I LOVE TAKING A PROJECT FROM A BRIEF AND FINDING A WAY HOW TO MAKE IT WORK AS A “WHOLE”, FINDING NEW IDEAS OR EMERGING DESIGNERS, LINKING THE DOTS TOGETHER.

    There is something thrilling working at complete darkness at 5am, like I am fighting crime..even though all I am really doing design.
