Kate Gibb has worked as a Printmaker & Illustrator from her makeshift print studio in Paddington, for over fifteen years. Her early studies in Printed Textiles fuelled her love for colour & pattern that provides the basis for the majority of her current practice.â¨ Her practice is predominantly self taught, intuitive and continually evolving, concentrating mainly on the creation of one-off pieces. She is renowned for her Music related sleeve artwork, most notably for her long standing relationship with The Chemical Brothers. â¨Non-commercially she continues to explore the silkscreen process, its tactile nature and subtle nuances. "I love the Silkscreen process and never seem too tired of it. Work is play to me for the majority of the time, for the rest it is a way of life".
