About the artist

Kate Brett (1963, UK) graduated with a BA in Three Dimensional Design and then went on to complete an MA in Fine Art Print from the Wimbledon College of Art in London. She then established her practice as an independent artist but also holds a position as a Fine Art tutor at the MPW College in London. Kate’s art is being exhibited throughout Europe and is part of many private collections within and outside Europe.

Her work is mainly derived from images of commuters or sections of graphics taken on the road, in stations or at airports and offers a fleeting glimpse of the transient nature of our lives. Her compositions create a sense of city life - a snippet of conversation, body language, a pigeon picking its way through the complexity of relationships both physical and human; graphic images dividing the space. She uses a variety of materials to create a sense of movement within a tight framework, exploring the relationship between empty and crowded spaces. Generally her work is printed and drawn onto high fired porcelain, which is symbolic in its nature of the fragility of our own existence.
