Biography

"Capturing character, essence, and soulfulness is what it’s all about." - Kate Kate is a professional oil painter from Bournemouth. Portraits and atmospheric scenes are her speciality, bringing alive precious memories of people, pets and places. Her style is a fusion of modern impressionism and realism with a lively use of brush marks. Kate is known for her colourful and atmospheric paintings of various subjects, which include people and pet portraits, flowers, landscapes and seascapes. She has completed many commissions and sells original oil paintings and other products. COMMISSIONS Kate works on archival acid free deep edge cotton canvas ready to hang with edges painted or canvas board which can be framed. She uses special handmade oil paints which contain natural pigments and no dryers. They are a similar quality of paint to that which the old masters used and are rich and vibrant. She can create a variety of compositions and work to different sizes. Please create a brief or conversation to discuss a potential commission.

Kate did a fantastic job with a fading old wedding photograph and I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for portrait work. Quick responses and work completed on time. Thanks for the artwork!
