Kate Stedman – Director French Fusion Travel.

Having always had a love of languages and history and being a historian and tour guide for many years I have been hosting a variety of different tours around the globe for over 20 years and speak French fluently as well as Italian. Originally a languages and history teacher, I have taught art classes at home and on tour for many years.

I specialise in coordinating Travel Sketching Holidays which we host throughout the year in different locations around the world for the growing number of people who enjoy combining creativity with travel and relaxation. As an avid sketcher myself I thoroughly enjoy meeting fellow enthusiasts and sketchers on these fun creative experiences with renowned international artists and Urban Sketching tutors.

As the Tour Manager I ensure that everyone feels included in the group and that the tour runs smoothly with lots of fun, laughter, learning and creativity.

These wonderful Tours keep me busy and away from home quite a bit as do the other historic and cultural tours I organise for other companies and clients each year.


My art is rather eclectic. I love Travel Journalling incorporating text, stories, collage, recipes, food sketches and watercolour paintings in my journals whilst on tour and I love showing people how to make a sketchbook journal look fabulous and be a thing to keep and treasure always. See a small range of my art below.
