Kate creates paintings in acrylics and oils that are characterised by expressive forms and colours that move intuitively from abstract to representational. Her work depicts snippets of memory and moments in time relating to place, emotion and whimsical events. She considers each piece to be a page out of her journal. The theme of contrasts is threaded throughout the works( figurative vs abstract, life vs death, naivety vs maturity, control vs letting go)
The work is created spontaneously, with the painting directing the artist so that each piece is a new adventure in composition,form and colour.
Through her work, Kate hopes to engage the viewers imagination and evoke a sense of joy.
