Kate is an artist and illustrator specialising in contemporary layered watercolours and mixed media. She grew up in Herefordshire and now works from her home studio, in rural Worcestershire.
Her work combines the use of contemporary watercolour techniques with cut or torn papers, layered to create three dimensional elements to draw you into the painting. She uses layering to help create depth and texture. Inspired by the countryside and the beautiful British coastline, Kate’s work often features little cottages and florals.
Kate studied graphic design, and then illustration at Hereford College of Art. After leaving college she worked for a commercial gallery in Birmingham, where she learnt the principals behind selling original paintings, met artists from all over the world and got an insight into printing on a commercial scale.
Her painting style has gradually evolved over the years but her love of colour, detail and texture has remained throughout.
Kate will be at the market on Saturday only
