Having grown up in a household with a fulltime artist, Kate has always had an interest in art and especially paintings, being drawn to the worlds that are created in the area of the canvas. After achieving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2003, Kate pursued a successful career in graphic design before eventually making the switch to art. She was mentored by her fine artist father, now focussing her time and energy into life as a contemporary artist from her studio in Brisbane, specialising in landscapes. Nature provides endless inspiration for her work, whether it be a vibrant seaside or a rural scene composed of dreamy hues. The most important aspect of her practice is balance, achieved through exploring colour in partnership with the composition. Her style is textural and bold; the placement and shape of every part of the painting is as considered as the colours that they are made up of. These palettes are either brought together in harmony or used alongside each other to bring tension, but always balanced. Kate’s work is fast becoming known for its whimsical, naïve and colourful boldness that invite the viewer to be drawn in through their imagination. Her paintings are in private collections throughout Australia, Asia, Europe, USA and Canada.
