I’m Kate Geyer; a writer and illustrator currently residing in Melbourne, Australia.
I write fiction and creative non-fiction. I’m less about imagination and more about observation. I like capturing the oh-so-tiny moments that make up a life.
I come from a family of crafters and small-time orators; storytelling is in embedded in everything I do.
I’ve worked as a music journalist, a cinema usher, a TV commercial extra, a florist for a fancy leatherwear store, and recently I’ve been doing a stint working as a marketing assistant for an arts festival. I’ve been writing my illustrated memoir for the past year and it’s nearing its final stages of completion. It’s a bit like My Brilliant Career via Dave Eggers, filtered through the lens of Maira Kalman. It’s haunting and raw and the thing which I’m most proud of.
In other news: I like magazine binges, ping pong and bird watching.
Some of my work is here for you to look at. Please do.
