Artist Statement

Whether I am outside working en plein air or in the studio, capturing the beautiful essence of the world is my focus in painting. I work to get a natural likeness with a soulful feeling. I predominately work in oils using traditional methods and handmade paints which provide richness and depth.


Kate Marr is a professional contemporary artist from Bournemouth, and paints seascapes and landscapes inspired by the beautiful scenery from Dorset and Hampshire. She paints many subjects via commission also. Lately Kate has worked on a new series of work themed on ‘light’ which can be viewed at exhibitions, galleries or on her website. Kate has worked as an artist for over a decade and loves to create atmospheric pieces, often painting on location or in the studio and is currently an artist in residence at the shop ‘Studio Poole’ by Poole Quay which provides a fantastic setting for her to create new work. She teaches art classes on Wednesdays in Christchurch.
