Paintings

The paintings presented here have been produced in my studio or out in the field, for galleries, private collectors and myself.

  • My studio work often involves working from my imagination often with narrative undertones
  • My plein-air work fuels this output

Sept 25th – Nov 7th 2021

‘Ruskin’s Reverie’ is the culmination of a 19-month long residency at Brantwood,John Ruskin’s former home.Kate applied for the residency to enable her to move away from strong landscape influences in her paintings, to experiment with contemporary media and to submerge herself body and soul into Brantwood.This exhibition of over 45 varied artworks focuses on Ruskin’s complex life and thoughts, his relationship with Turner and Effie Gray and his extraordinary literary, academic and artistic skill set.

NB.Some works are 3D in mirrored boxes and therefore impossible to photograph representationally.Therefore I have omitted these from this virtual platform.

Narrative Painting 2018…

Hamlet, Ophelia, Shakespeare and all that jazz

This body of work was created over the winter of 2017 and spring 2018. Millais’s painting of Ophelia was my inspiration.

Analysing why this image (so beguiling and beautiful) is, when all said and done, depicting a scene of someone drowning.

My intention was to retain the beauty whilst exploring these themes. As each painting developed I was motivated to explore other themes such as drifting, movement, distortion of image, suspension, peacefulness, textiles, pattern and costume.
