Kate Douglas fell in love with Ipswich and now resides on the banks of the Bremer River. Her artworks capture the view at the river’s edge: ever changing networks of trees, roots, ragged grasses, leaves and other flora, ebbing and flowing with the tides and seasons leaving Kate with endless inspiration.

Her latest works in Entanglement explore how the interconnections that we view in nature mimic those we experience in our human relationships – pushing, pulling, finding balance and becoming part of a network or support system.
