Kate Slater is a freelance illustrator who studied at Kingston University. She grew up on a beautiful farm in Staffordshire, UK, from where she still works in her studio in the old apple room.
Kate works in collage and paper-cuts which she uses to create suspended, relief illustrations. The real-life collages often look a bit like tiny, chaotic paper theatre sets which Kate then photographs to produce the final image.
Kate has also had a number of children’s books published.
Yorkshire Sculpture Park is the UK’s leading open air gallery and the flock of birds collage was made for the window display of their shop.
Kate’s collage illustration prints, cards and wrapping paper are available to buy in her Etsy shop KateFete.
