Biography Part 2
Kate grew up in Surrey and having a creative spirit, was always painting and drawing. Pursuing this passion she completed a Foundation Course in Art and Design in 2005 at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design. In 2008 Kate completed a Fine Art BA (Hons) degree at Plymouth University. After this, she had a few exhibitions, then whilst working in Oxford Street, London in retail management, she worked part time as a portrait artist taking commissions. By 2016, Kate had decided to become a full time professional artist. Initially she was living in London and then the opportunity came to move to Bournemouth and paint the beautiful scenery there. She then focused her attention on seascapes and landscapes painted in oils. Kate started teaching art classes and found this to be a delight, which also inspired her to expand her range of media in her work including watercolours and acrylic. She then learned of a more experimental approach to painting nature and embraced this. You can view beautiful collections of Kate’s paintings which are based on colour palette, season and mood on her website or at exhibitions.
