An Interview with Kate
What themes/subjects do you enjoy painting the most?
Currently birds. And trees. Fantasy, esoteric, and environmental themes.
What do you want a viewer to feel or think when viewing your art?
Visually attractive but also resonating on an meaningful level. I often like to ‘hide’ elements that aren’t seen or noticed straight away.
What do you love about being an artist? And/or what is most difficult?
I love being able to express myself in paint, craft, clay, and plants. The most difficult part is finding the time to do it! I have 4 children, am full-time Carer to my mother, and have a ridiculous number of pets that I adore!
In what ways do you share your art?
I currently have prints and product available through-
