In Spring 2023 Kate was selected and commissioned by Haringey Council and Made By Tottenham and supported by the Greater London Authority (London City Hall) to create a 20 metre long mural outside of Tottenham Hale rail and tube station, as part of the regeneration of the area. Installed in December 2023, Kate wrote about this public artwork saying:
“This work is a semi-abstract and symbolic mural montage depicting Tottenham Hale over many years. It includes the interlacing of the waterways, marshes and animals in the area who have co-existed with humans over many centuries. From pre-Norman times Tottenham Hale and the River Lea has been utilised and lived in by an evolving ecosystem that is part of the greater London area. The foxes in the mural are symbolic of this coexistence as they have always been a part of the urban streets of the area, and have adapted to the now heavily urban nature of Tottenham Hale. 
This area however has gone through enormous change over many centuries, including difficult social and economic upheaval, urban sprawl and now, regeneration. This mural explores that layering of lives and shapes over many centuries and cultures in a colourful, life-affirming manner. The mural aims to  make the walk or journey along this part of Ferry Lane more welcoming and hopeful to residents and visitors to Tottenham Hale. The many and rich cultures of Tottenham Hale are symbolised by the huge array of colour, shape and movement in this mural.”

This work is a temporary site installation public work in North London on Ferry Lane N17. To contact Kate about this or other work please get in touch here.
