Kate grew up on a farm in Weston, which her grandfather had bought from Adrian Bell whose books were illustrated by Becker’s drawings. These drawings were very resonant of that period of farming where man and horse worked together.
Like Becker Kate has a passion for drawing, she also records the countryside around her making the ordinary look interesting as he did.
This year Kate has undertaken a yearlong sketchbook challenge for 2016, which involves completing and posting a sketch on social media every day. She hopes to publish a book with these sketches and the work inspired by them.
