Kate Jenkins is one of our most original and innovative UK artists. Famous for her unique crocheted food, Kate takes a nostalgic look at everyday items, re-invented in wool and yarn with wry, comic touches. She has exhibited in London, Brighton and the United States and her work is collected worldwide.
Graduating from the University of Brighton in 1995 with a degree in Fashion & Textile, Kate works from her studio and shop in Brighton. In her previous life as a successful knitting consultant, she sold her designs to fashion labels Marc Jacobs, Missoni, Sonia Rykiel and Donna Karan before establishing her own label Cardigan in 2003 which produces gorgeous fashion and homewares.
