The work of Kate Alger


Kate Alger grew up on the edge of the Potteries, in a sleepy little market town drenchedin tales of Josiah Wedgwood’s craftsmanship and surrounded by rolling countryside. Shehad 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, andthe result of many years spent in the presence of elegant French architecture, stunningnatural scenery and wonderful light.She now lives on the edge of the Surrey Hills and is a full-time artist-printmaker (whoalso speaks pretty good French). Kate Alger specialises in fineliner original drawings,handpulled screenprints and hand-printed etchings. Every stage of every piece of Kate’sartwork is created by hand using old-fashioned techniques, skills and tools. It’s a soulfulprocess and labour-intensive but it’s a labour of love. Kate’s artwork balances herdetailed hand-drawings with strong yet minimalistic compositions through her use ofnegative space. She strives to capture the personality and appearance of her subjectmatter (be that classic cars, animals or landscapes) in a timeless manner. Kate’s classiccar screenprints are a celebration of the aesthetics and craftsmanship of a bygone era.Kate Alger regularly undertakes commissions, creates small limited-edition fine art printruns, open edition greetings cards and enjoys teaching a broad range of art and craftdisciplines, primarily to children.Her work is sold in established art galleries and held in private collections.
