A few words about me by way of introduction—mostly work-related.
I am an Australian professional actor and arts educator who has worked in both education and the performing arts for most of my career. In the performing arts industry, in which I have worked since 1972, I am known by my stage name Kate Wilson.
As an educator, I began my career in the mid 1960s as a classroom teacher. Over the years I have taught in all levels from Primary through Secondary and Adult Education to formal Higher Education in both the UK and in Australia. I also maintain a private practice as an acting and voice coach.
As an educator, I use my married name to honour the support and encouragement given to me by my late husband, Murray Foy during the time I was engaged in study and research for my PhD at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I could not have completed this work without his love and encouragement. He died before I completed my dissertation but, when it was done, I dedicated it to him and used my married name as author and in my capacity as an Associate Professor and arts advocate.
In 2020, I was honoured by the Actors Benevolent Fund (Queensland) who presented me with the Alan Edwards Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Performing Arts in Queensland.

On the personal side, I love travel and have been hitting the road and the skies on a regular basis since the late 1960s when I flew on the then-new 747s to London for the first of many international trips. Right now I’m missing the freedom to roam during this global pandemic. For now, our wings may be clipped, but we’ll be back.
I’ve always loved reading, sketching, photography, and the company of my best pal, Bea, a golden Cavoodle who keeps me honest with daily walks and a liveliness that is delightful and infectious.
You might also like to get social on Twitter where I maintain a regular presence. I’m there most days.
