About Kate Jenkins
Welcome to the world of Kate Jenkins: a magical cornucopia of playful pop-art crochet, knit and embroidery creations. Kate is best known for her food-focused treats, which intertwine her trademark sense of humour with colourful yarns constructed into everything from patisserie pleasures to prawn platters.
Often offering a comforting nod to nostalgia, many of Kate’s artworks upcycle the everyday and transform them into a better way. As Waitrose magazine says, ‘there is seemingly no dish or foodstuff she can’t render exquisitely with yarn and stitches.’
Most recently, her artworks have been commissioned for projects by Viking Cruises, Royal Mail and the fashion label, Anthropologie. Exhibitions have popped up in Hong Kong, London and New York City. Bespoke artworks adorn the walls of fans’ homes from Beverly Hills to Brisbane, Bahrain to Brighton, where Kate Jenkins Studio is based.
These days, Kate enjoys enviable publicity in national and international publications, with editors spotting an opportunity to share and celebrate Kate’s unique sense of style.
“While my journey has been varied and exciting, one thing never changes,” she says. “Whatever I create, whether it’s a carton of French fries, a tin of sardines or a box of frogs I always include lots of warmth and a dash of wit. Above all, I want my work to make people smile.”
