Bold, dramratic, and emotive - Power’s artwork echoes the people and place that have inspired it. Drawing from Irish folklore, mythology, history and the land itself, Power creates a contemporary visual language evocative of a once known Ireland. Typography and symbols resurected from the past, combined with mystic imagery inspired by folktales, childrens books and traditional tattoos, amalgamate to take the form of hand forged prints, celebrating the merging of past, present and future Irish art and design.
Kate currently lives and works in Dublin 7, Ireland, with her partner, dog Cúper and cat...Cat.
