Steenhauer, Kate

Originally from the Netherlands, my diverse career path has taken me from semi-professional tennis in my youth, to civil engineering at Delft University of Technology, a PhD in Coastal Engineering from the University of Aberdeen, to fine art. Now as a multi-award winning emerging artist I produce contemporary work on heritage, landmarks and industries using oil paint, Japanese ink and intaglio printmaking techniques. New work features illustrates my collaboration with Conductor Matthew Kofi Waldren, a rising star in the UK Opera Industry. In May 2017 I created ink drawings from life of Matthew in action, alongside the orchestra City of London Sinfonia, Chorus of Opera Holland Park and Principal singers, during the rehearsals for Puccini’s late masterpiece, La Rondine, at Opera Holland Park.
