Sherida Kate – Bio Short
Sherida Kate is a multidisciplinary artist with an interest in drawing, painting, sculpture, jewellery and textiles. Her current practice involves incorporating fire into these disciplines.
From the age of two she was most easily amused by a piece of paper and any drawing implement, and this passion only grew throughout her years of study. She recently graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Contemporary Art.
In 2017 she joined Adelaide Fringe production The Talents of Darkness as Stage Hand, eventually being promoted to Social Media Editor, Makeup Artist (including drag queen makeup) and Associate Producer. She was also hired to design a hand-painted logo for the 2019 re-branding of the show. Her interest in fire stemmed from working in The Talents of Darkness where she began learning the art of fire eating, which soon led her to exploring the use of fire in a visual arts sense.
