Kate’s work as an artist celebrates nature, fusing colour and imagination to bring to life the lushness and beauty of the natural world. Her complex compositions portray the plants, animals and insects found in a variety of global habitats with increasing reference to indigenous and endangered species. Whilst extensive research informs every painting, Kate imagines habitats and plant life from a new perspective, blending the real with the unreal.
‘’The experience I want to give anyone who looks at my work is to continually see something new. I like hiding small details or creatures in dense foliage to be discovered. I want my work not only to have an immediate visual impact but also to reward closer investigation into the complex, vibrant and overgrown worlds I create”
