About the Artist - Kate Hill
Kate works from her studio/gallery in the heart of New Zealand’s Waikato which overlooks the bush and rural landscape, providing her with inspiration. Other influences include her own personal history and the complexity and pressures of 21st-century life.
“I have lived in New Zealand for more than 25 years and during that time have been working with fabric and fibre, print and paint. Right now I am very excited by the direction my work is taking as I push the boundaries and combine elements of all these media. A new press, built for me by Edward Snowdon of Christchurch, is offering enormous creative opportunities and I am also extremely interested in interrogating works digitally to develop and extend their possibilities.”
Kate’s pieces can be found in private and public collections throughout New Zealand, the UK and the USA. Her exhibition history is vast within the Waikato region which stems back to the 1990’s, including many exhibitions here at ArtsPost. She exhibits regularly in Hamilton, Auckland and the Coromandel.
