Originally from Sheffield, Yorkshire, Kate Wickham trained at Camberwell School of Art and the Royal College of Art. IShe now lives and works in both Rodmell, Lewes, East Sussex and South West France. Kate originally trained and worked in ceramics but about six years ago moved from ceramics into painting full time. She is the founder and head of the Ceramics Diploma course at City Lit in London. Her work is loosely based on landscapes, seascapes and aerial views of areas she knows well – West Penwith in Cornwall, South West France, The South Downs, the West of Scotland and the East Sussex coast. Landscapes, seascapes – mapping the land -, memories and symbols are explored to convey meanings beyond representation, by combining painting with gestural drawing and mark-making using a variety of mixed media.
