Brooklyn Art Library

It was fantastic to have my sketchbook which is part of the world’s largest collection based in Brooklyn NYC, featured in @Frankiespeaking instagram feed. When this pandemic is over I would like to travel back to BYC and see it again for myself. It’s a very strange world since March 2020 #staysafe

Lest We Forget

With the Covid19 restrictions we joined the rest of our street alongside people from all over Australia at sunrise ANZAC morning 2020. We gathered on our driveway with this photo of my Great Grandfather who is buried at Villers Bretonneux in France as a mark of respect for fallen soldiers in every conflict. Such a tragic waste of lives. Lest we forget.

Commuter Hacks Australia

I recently supplied this image of one of my train sketches to help promote the Department of Transport’s ‘Commuter Life Hacks Australia’. (This is the second time DoT has used this image!) Did you know full time workers spend 5.75 hours just commuting to and from work? How do you make the most of your commute? I love making quick sketches. I find the time passes very quickly. Check out “Your Move: more ways to get there”. https://yourmove.org.au

Feature by Paper Blanks Note Books

Cate Rose always pop a little blank book, pens and a tin of tiny watercolours in her bag to keep busy in down time. A couple of years ago she discovered the international Paper Blanks brand which makes a range of books with beautiful covers and was recently featured on their instagram feed. #peopleofpaperblanks #urbansketchers #usk #sketchbook @cateroseart

Specialising in exclusive imported spectacle frames not found elsewhere in Perth, David Shanahan is a lover of fine art and design.

To celebrate Cate’s exhibition of prints on wood and the Trunk Show of visiting Spectacle designers Francis Klein from Paris, Cate Rose created oversized Francis Klein frames for the shop displayed in the shop window.

Fremantle: City of Colour – an artist’s celebration of the port city

“This is a pretty book. If you bought it for no other reason than to appreciate the gorgeous illustrations it would be money well spent…”

The West Australian Newspaper, Book Reviews – Art & Design, Ian Nichols

“The book is superbly produced and represents excellent value for your own coffee table or for a special gift”

Professor Charles Watson AM, Neuroscientist & Public Health Physician, Curtin University

“Fremantle: City of Colour is an outstanding example of a quality West Australian book and will be treasured by all those who know and love Fremantle”

David Harding, Branch Librarian, Melville Civic Square Library, Booragoon, Western Australia

With her book, Fremantle: City of Colour, Cate has brought the spirit of Fremantle into vivid focus, with page after page of wonderful paintings, photographs and historical notes. I found myself transported back to revisit many happy memories of time spent in ‘Freo’, and I believe this book will be a delight for anyone who either knows or wishes to know this unique city.

Steven Heathcote AM, Former Principal Artist, The Australian Ballet

It is a truly beautiful book which illustrates the magnificence of Fremantle’s architecture and colourful past and also captures the vibrancy and cosmopolitan lifestyle of our port city.
