Working as an abstract painter, Kate's works are driven by instinctive and emotional responses to landscape and the energy of human interconnection. Losing herself in a dense subtropical environment and immersing the viewer in the rich and fecund terrain of her paintings, a synchronicity between nature and organic movement, encourages a connection and emotional reaction to her art. Kate's paintings are a physical demonstration of her imagination, memories and conversations. Works explore feelings of space, manipulation and the chance of built-up layers finding a voice on the canvas. Compositions arise from balancing opposing angles and strokes with the vitality of gestural mark-making, colour and texture.
