Paper artist

Using recycled paper Kate captures the delicate detail and beauty found in nature. Her work is influenced by plants, insects and found objects which she recreates as intricate, life-sized sculptures and arranges carefully into collections, installations and dioramas.  

She has always been fascinated by the natural world and documenting what she discovers has become her main motivation for creating her work. Kate loves scientific illustrations and museum collections that record and display information and document our discovery of nature. Kate views her work as a 3D record of learning and experiences of the natural world.

Kasasagi - translated from Japanese means Magpie. It is used figuratively to refer to a person who obsessively collects things.
