Kate Elisabeth Rolison
Born in 1991, in Walthamstow, East London, Kate is a recent graduate of the Performance Writing BA at University College Falmouth. A course which involved spending considerable lengths of time inside a tree, amongst other things.
After exploring a number of different artistic techniques, in 2010 Kate turned to embroidery as her primary medium. She often combines text and image in her work. Kate has become involved with the crafting community in Walthamstow, exhibiting in the E17 Art Trail for the first time in 2011. She has also run a number of workshops and exhibited her artwork at The Mill Community Centre.
Although only just beginning what she hopes will be a life of professional practice, Kate's work can be seen at the blog, Poesie Grenadine.
Themes in Rolison's work include love, lust, loneliness (and other little 'L's), feminism, and the cliche of the tortured artist. She is particularly influenced by the work of Louise Bourgeois, Grayson Perry and Joetta Maue.
