It has been lovely to discover Kate Slater's work, she works in collage and paper cut outs which are suspended to create relief illustrations. I love her characters and sense of atmosphere in the worlds she creates. You can buy prints and cards from her etsy shop.
You can also see more examples of her work on her blog and website. Kate grew up with two black cats Helen and Robert (formerly Rosie) and says she would love a Persian cat one day.
