Kate Tucker

Artist

Kate is one of these rare souls who never gets bored or lost with her work; she credits her success to “not doing too much” which, considering she is a mother and accomplished artists, with paintings hanging in homes all over the world, is still “quite a lot” by normal standards.

In Kate’s Inspiration Bomb (which you’ll find in the BHB Inspiration Bombs Library), she says:

“I had always loved art and I always wanted to be an artist, but somehow I guess I let myself feel that that it was too hard, or it wasn’t gonna work, or that I’d left my run too late or any of those excuses I could find… ”

But then, as luck might have it, fate stepped in. And fate rarely looks the way you think it will.

Kate Tucker is a Melbourne based Artist whose multifaceted practice spans painting, sculpture and installation. Since graduating from VCA in 2009, Tucker has had four sellout solo shows, has twice been a finalist in the Churchie Emerging Art Award and was selected for the 2012 the Archibald Prize, for her portrait of singer Missy Higgins. Her artwork is featured on the cover of Higgins 2012 solo album ‘The ‘Ol Razzle Dazzle’. Tucker was included in Australian Art Collector’s 2013 edition on ‘50 Things Collectors Should Know’ and a profile on her practice is featured in Art Collector´s July – September 2014 issue.
