Kate, originally from Guildford, moved to Cornwall to work as an Occupational Therapist and quickly fell in love with the place she now calls home and where she lives with her two teenage children. The abundance of galleries in the area sparked a dormant desire to compliment her problem solving job with a creative one, and started building a body of work in her own unique style.

Working in oil and mixed media, Kate’s work is a unique expression of freedom and boundless in its imagination. Each original piece is uncompromised and unlimited – with inspiration drawn from her home surroundings – windswept trees and colourful fields.

Like many artists, her work carries an emotional element which reflects her description of the process of painting as simultaneously cathartic, meditative, explorative and exhilarating.

Kate has enjoyed mixed and solo shows in her home town of Penzance and in Cardiff
