  • Biography
Kate is a professional artist based on the Solway Coast in SW Scotland. She is an elected member of the Society of Women Artists and a retired member of The Lakes Artists Society.
In the studio Kate usually works from her imagination often referring to sketches from en-plein air expeditions
“Studio paintings are often conceived by a series of random mark making. Subconscious underlying themes and memories of seasons, light conditions, smells etc often emerge. En plein-air expeditions and life drawing/studies act as resource training exercises to aid with this process”
