Pattern and colour play an important role in Kate’s paintings with decorative repeats often being present in her work. She works intuitively with colour and paints in response to the beautiful landscapes that surround her be it in East Anglia, Cornwall or the Dales. She invites the viewer to enjoy and celebrate the colour and line. She uses oil paint combined with chalk, oil pastel, emulsion and acrylic paint on canvas and board.
She paints and illustrates in her studio, which changes location frequently as she travels with her Forces husband and young family. Giving Kate new inspiration and keeping her work fresh and exciting wherever she maybe.
