About Me

Sea Otter.jpeg

Kate Smith is a printmaker living in the New Forest, England. She uses her drawing skills to create images of wildlife, plants and trees. Her fascination with biodiversity is reflected in her work; from close up images of tiny elements in nature, such as micro funghi, to larger creatures such as whale sharks. Each print shows the unique relationship between the main subject and its habitat. Her love of bold colour and detailed mark marking makes her style varied; moving between detailed one block prints to colourful multi-plate images. 


Kate is a self-taught printmaker. She took evening classes in printmaking where she fell in love with the feeling of carving lino and the process of printing. After many years creating displays in shops as a Visual Merchandiser she moved to art group facilitation for mental health charities, all the time working on her artistic practise. She now lives and works in the New Forest where she finds inspiration from the surroundings of the beautiful National Park. She is a proud member of the New Forest Marque Inspired.
