Kate Churchwell (K8)
Born and educated in the UK, I moved, with my husband and young family, to France in 2006. With a derelict property to renovate, a field to tame, a new language to learn and children to bring up, `The good life' was full-on and hectic! Now, more than ten years on, It is time to turn my attentions to my true passions of art and nature.
As I keen gardener, I have always been in awe of nature, of how powerful and beautiful it can be. Over many years, a botanical study of each plant as they were placed, moved, removed and replaced in the garden revealed a love for the underdog, a respect for every plant on an equal level. A weed after all, is merely a plant in the wrong place!. By casting in white and stripping away all the colour, the shrinking violet often reveals itself as a well deserved shooting star!"
Working from my studio at home, using materials grown in my garden and the surrounding area of beautiful rural Bretagne, I create intricately detailed Bas Relief Wall Art that is not only beautiful to look at but also incredibly tactile. Each piece gives a true sense and feeling of nature in 3D. Whether it be a single flower or leaf, or a field of wild flowers, every piece evokes a feeling of restfulness, calm and tranquillity and in many cases creates a special memory. Capturing a moment in time!
Why UNIQUE KR8IVITY? (A play on words) "It has to be almost 20 years since I sent my first text on a mobile phone and signed it 'K8', (I still remember who it was to!). Since that very day, everything I have ever created has been signed with that initial and it has now become my trademark. Wanting a name for my business that reflected the essence of what I did and incorporated my name I came up with Unique Kr8ivity."
