About Me

Kate Tume is an artist from west Sussex. Her work explores themes around species loss and the decline in our natural world, and seeks to subvert popular narratives around what extinction looks like. She often uses religious iconography and mythology in her work to engage the viewer in a dialogue about what we hold sacred, and how that has changed.

Kate’s work has featured in publications and exhibitions internationally. She teaches textile art techniques to students from around the world via her workshops, one-to-one tuition and online classes. She also designs and produces a range of Textile Art Boxes, which provide the opportunity to master hand embellishment and embroidery techniques in a sustainable, zero-waste kit.
