In 2000 and 2001 she became a finalist with 3 works in the National Telecom Art Awards, and in 2002 was chosen as feature Artist for the “Hawkes Bay Vintners Charity Wine Auction with her painting entitled “The Naked Bidder”.
Kates work has also been selected for Hawkes Bay Review and in recent years, the EAST Exhibition.
Her paintings have been sold in galleries throughout New Zealand and 6 of her earlier works are displayed in the reception area of the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor in Wellington.

Elements of surrealism, expressionism and subtle quirky humour are mingled in a unique style, with hide-and-seek references and playful visual puns.
