Kate Gibb has worked as a printmaker and illustrator for over fifteen years from a print studio in Paddington.

A silkscreen obsessive, her early studies in printed textiles fuelled her inherent love of colour and pattern which continually provide the basis for the majority of her work. The kind of printing that she is inspired by relies on chance, hiccups and happy accidents. Technically, her practice is self taught, experimental and continually evolving.

Commercially, she is renowned for her music-related sleeve artwork, most notably for a long standing relationship with The Chemical Brothers. Non-commercially, she continues to explore the silk-screen process, its tactile nature and subtle nuances providing the many graphic characteristics, typical of her one-off pieces and hand-screened editions.

Past Clients include: 180 Amsterdam, Apple, M&C Saatchi, Pentagram, SonyBMG, Virgin Records, EMI Music Publishing, Creative Review, Nike, Dries Van Noten, Levis, Penguin Books, Bloomsbury Publishing, The Guardian & Observer.
