I have known Kate pretty much from the moment I first moved to the Yass Valley Shire. Immensely talented lady in many forms of the arts though, like many artists, she finds it hard to find time to sit down and do boring things like writing biographical details for the YASSarts website! So, I’m placing this entry here in the hope that I can shame her into supplying me with more material real soon.
Kate was cartoonist in residence for the Yass Tribune for many years and yours truly was the subject, more than once, of her insightful wit. Throughout those years she also taught piano and continues to do so. She also has many children’s books in various stages of progress (naturally with wonderful illustrations to accompany them) and we look forward to seeing some of these published in the future.
She has recently provided the cover art for the 2013 Yass Writer’s Group anthology. Below are a few samples of her children’s book illustrations.
