Raised in England, Kate’s earliest formal training was in London at Chelsea School of Arts and then she went on to Queen’s College and University College to study Humanities because it seemed more marketable, but she kept sneaking back into the studio arts classes to paint.
For many years, Kate was focused on the appearance and surfaces of many subjects but later became more concerned with an object or person’s internal nature and expression. Now everything she chooses to paint becomes a vehicle used to express emotion. Kate participates in juried fine art shows in the USA, as well as leading painting workshops and classes. She is a member of the artist collective McRae Studios in downtown Orlando, FL. Kate lives in Central Florida.
