Kate Heiss studied at the Royal College of Art graduating with an MA in Textile Design in 1997. She then worked as a Textile Designer across a wide range of fashion brands including Fenchurch, Miss Selfridge and the Japanese fashion designer Michiko Koshino. Kate has lectured in Japan and was a visiting tutor at Central St Martins College of Art and Design and Buckinghamshire New University.
In 2011 Kate set up her own printmaking studio after receiving a Certificate of Printmaking with distinction from the prestigious Curwen Print Study Centre.
Her approach to design and printmaking stems from a love of florals, geometric patterns and bold colours often found in textiles. Much of her inspiration comes from the natural landscapes of East Anglia. She works in a variety of techniques including Linocut, Screenprint, Chine Collé, Collagraph and Collage. All her work is on paper.
