Originally from Auckland, New Zealand Kate has been travelling and living in different countries, in between studying and working, for the last 5 years. Trained as an architect, Kate’s passion for photography began with a course in black and white film photography 5 years ago. Kate still continues to pursue the art form that is black and white film photography as she finds nothing more satisfying than developing her own photographs, but has also moved into the world of digital photography.

Each country she places her feet down in provides a new opportunity to create and capture new memories. Photography allows her to discover as much as she can about each place through the eye of her lens. Kate has a particular interest in exploring the effects of light on places, buildings and objects. Combining her passions of travel and photography has broadened Kate’s horizons and she strongly believes that “art is not about what you see, but what you make others see”. She hopes through her photographs she can share some of her experiences.

Kate currently resides in Melbourne, a city with one of the most interesting art and design cultures she has experienced. She recently exhibited at the Build New Memories fundraising exhibition for The Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal to help those affected by wide spread flooding in Queensland. She also exhibited at the 10th Annual Traditional Darkroom Printmakers Exhibition at Michaels Gallery where she was selected to exhibit at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale later this year.

Kate has five artworks on display and for sale at one hundredth gallery until 26 June 2011.
