Cate Kuzik

Cate Kuzik is a local artist with a passion for traditional handmade techniques in this increasingly digital age. While eager to explore a variety of craft & printmaking techniques, she often finds herself returning to the mechanical, tactile nature of Letterpress. Her work tends to explore the interpretation of language and frequently employs hand-drawn, carved typography or sign language with a bold graphic aesthetic. Never accused of using too many neutrals, Cate’s creative energy and down-to-earth nature is immediately evident in her fun and colourful creations. She is based in Edmonton and is the creative force the drives Ochre Lea (“oh-kerr-lee”). Her posters and stationery feature a combination of her own hand-carved images with handset antique lead and wood type. Her work has a bold graphic aesthetic & often employs her own drawn, carved typography and geometric patterns.
