Welcome. I’m Kate Goetz – the face behind Blue Chisel Studio.
I’m a lifelong artist with a Fine Art degree from the University of British Columbia. Essentially a self-taught printmaker, I’ve been making reduction relief prints since 2005 and I see no end in sight. I love every aspect of this challenging and rewarding process – one that still offers so much to be discovered.
Much of the inspiration for my work comes from nature: either places I travel through, or my immediate surroundings. I live in a small mountain town in British Columbia, Canada, next door vast stretches of untamed wilderness.
Along with this, I also draw ideas from the folklore of the Czech Republic, where I was born.
