About Kate

Artist Statement

“My painting is all about capturing the atmosphere, beauty and energy of the coastline and landscape. I live in Bournemouth and find plenty of inspiration around me, often sketching on cliff tops, beaches or in The New Forest and other beautiful places in all weathers! When there is a wonderful contrast of light due to a moody sky or bright dappled sunshine glowing through the trees against shaded areas, I find pure joy in painting these dramatic scenes. I am always exploring painting the quirky shapes and forms nature provides with an imaginative contemporary style and with the use of beautiful colours.”
