Kate feels her inspirations come from the ‘everyday’ and the little moments in life that make her smile. Her painting style embraces the family life, such as walking the dog, happy places, holidays and memories. Her work describes a line between a figurative narrative and abstract elements within painting.
She has always been fascinated by people and bold characters, particularly female. She aims to depict these female versions with a sense of humour, ambiguity and sincerity.
During the recent circumstances of 'Lockdown’ she has felt more compelled than ever to draw upon these experiences and memories. She has needed to keep painting and drawing in order to keep herself sane . These paintings are very much an expression of that journey through colour, pattern and texture.
