Kate Alger grew up on the edge of the Potteries, in a sleepy little market town drenched in tales of Josiah Wedgwood's craftsmanship and surrounded by rolling countryside. She had 3 dreams; to escape to France, speak perfect French, and be an artist.
Her artwork is a combination of this childhood exposure to celebrated craftsmanship, and the result of many years spent in the presence of elegant French architecture, stunning natural scenery and wonderful light.
She now lives on the edge of the Surrey Hills and is a full-time artist-printmaker (who also speaks pretty good French). Kate Alger specialises in fineliner original drawings, hand-pulled screenprints and hand-printed etchings. Every stage of every piece of Kate's artwork is created by hand using old-fashioned techniques, skills and tools. It's a soulful process and labour-intensive but it's a labour of love. Kate's artwork balances her detailed hand-drawings with strong yet minimalistic compositions through her use of negative space. She strives to capture the personality and appearance of her subject matter (be that animals, landscapes or classic cars) in a timeless manner.
Kate Alger regularly undertakes commissions, creates small limited-edition fine art prints, open edition greetings cards and enjoys teaching a broad range of art and craft disciplines, primarily to children. She is one of the selected artists who works with Historic Car Art and she is currently working on an exciting collaboration with a high-end British retailer. Kate is thrilled to have her work in the New Ashgate Gallery and to be part of the Winter Exhibition 2020.
