Kate was born and raised in Sydney, working in oils before moving to watercolour in 1995. The fascinating effects achieved when paints are dropped into water and sprayed with water keep her inspired.
If you were to ask Kate what she likes to paint, her answer would be movement and emotion, rather than a particular subject. Her work is vibrant and strong, usually displaying a dynamic sense of movement. The style is definitely contemporary with colour used quite forcefully.
Occasionally her work will move into mixed media to achieve texture and thereby add extra dimension to her art.
She has received recognition through awards and her work can be found in local Australian collections as well as overseas.
