Kate Tupper

Kate Tupper is a Nakusp-born and based sculpture artist. After graduating the ‘C’ level welding program in 2004, the following years working in trades and heavy construction have given Kate a firsthand view of traditional uses of materials. A lifelong love of craft, nature, and ecology influence her method, texture, and composition. Kate spends her summers as lead to Shambhala Music Festival site’s Farm Decor team, designing, facilitating, and mentoring large scale multi-media installations. In 2017, Kate’s project, Heavenly Bodies, premiered at Revelstoke's Luna Public Arts festival. It carried on the following year, 2018, to show at Calgary’s Beakerhead as well as Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. Multiple wins and leases through several years of competition at Castlegar Sculpturewalk were building blocks, and in 2017 Kate was recognized by Canada Council as a professional artist in Canada.
