Her collections are dynamic and use a variety of mediums and techniques including mixed media painting , pen and ink drawings, monoprinting and digital drawing.
Kate’s pen and ink drawings are elegant and fluid and lure the viewer in with their intricacy and shear scale. Her paintings capture the beauty and vibrancy of the Devon and Cornish coastline with a contemporary twist. She loves to work outside on location and her main concern is the total immersion of a place or her subject.
