Kate Bass
British poet Kate Bass was born in north London. She studied chemistry at Edinburgh University and worked for the Patent Agency in London before studying illustration at Anglia Polytechnic University. She lives in Cambridge, England, with her family and works as an illustrator.
 
Bass’s collections of poems include a pamphlet titled Onion House (1996) and a full-length book, The Pasta Maker (2003). Her poems explore family, relationships, and child-raising. While her poetry presents precise observations of the everyday, complicated emotional undertones also haunt the seemingly ordinary objects and situations that she describes.
