You cannot help but smile when you view Cate’s vibrant work. A certain naïvety in style combined with a mastery of balance in both the graphics and colour, I’m getting a sprinkling of Ziggy Stardust here. The storytelling nature of this piece would make it ideal for a children’s playroom in a contemporary home.

SUZANNE GORMAN

Studio Gorman Interior Design, Sydney

Fiji creates a feeling of nostalgia, playfulness and naivety. Having travelled to Fiji as a child, Cate’s work takes me back to a time I cherish. With a slight retro vibe, I can see this working well in a child’s retreat.

JANE STARK

Stark Design Interiors + Exteriors, Sydney

Kaleidoscopically colourful and highly decorative, this idiosyncratic artwork is bursting with energy. The primary colours and accessible narrative make it a natural fit for a child’s zone. Vi- brant furniture and storage would complete the fun feel.
