As natives to the North East, we're used to pretty rubbish weather! Even in April, we have become accustomed to sleet, snow and gales so, when the sun does fancy making an appearance, it fills us all with pure joy. That very same sense of elation is felt when you look at Kate's work. From vivid prints to detailed greetings cards to organic tea towels, Kate's work covers it all. Covering everything from Hadrian's Wall to Holy Island and everything in-between, Kate's designs have the power to transport you to all your favourite spots in the North East of England.
Kate uses different colour palettes to represent each of the individual regions within the North East. For instance, Kate tends to adopt tones of yellow and green to depict the beauty of rural Northumberland. Mustard tones are used to depict sun-soaked castles while sap green hues represent the regions glorious countryside. When Kate is designing a coastal area, be it Lindisfarne or St Mary's, she always uses blue and grey tones to emulate the crashing waves of the North Sea.
Kate Miller's printed designs are unlike any other- you can spot them a mile off- and they truly capture the beauty of our wonderful region in the most unique way. We're so lucky to have such a visionary like Kate as part of our For the Love of the North family and we're so excited to see what wonderful designs she has planned for the future.
