Kate Just: visual artist, feminist, academic

I was excited and inspired recently to not only discover the work (art/academic) of Australian visual artist Kate Just but to reach out and connect with her.  Her work is thoughtful, smart and sensitive and I encourage you to check it out.

Knit on my friend!

Kate Just is currently a lecturer in the School of Art, at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne.
