Born in Greenock in 1975, Cate attended Glasgow School of Art, graduating with a BA (Hons.) in 1999.  

First working as a designer, she then pursued a decade long career as a freelance arts educator, working with public bodies and local authorities to plan and deliver high quality arts education for 5 - 18 years olds.  

Throughout this period Cate continued her painting practice, and in 2013 was awarded the RGI Armour Prize for landscape painting of distinction.  Painting full time since 2013, Cate has exhibited widely throughout the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland and has won numerous prestigious awards, showing her work at the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh and The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, London.  

In 2016 she was awarded Professional Member of the Society of Scottish Artists and continues to exhibit with respected galleries throughout the UK & Ireland and at International Art Fairs.  Her work can be found in both private and public collections.
