May 2024

Hectic May preparing for South East Open Studio. It’s been a challenging month for me, I’ve experienced creative burnout at the sheer volume of work I’ve produced since January. It’s amazing to see how far I have come though and to see all my work take shape. I experimented with abstract seascapes in acrylic this month and what do you think? Speak soon! Kate x

I did 12 in this series, all 20x20cm canvas in a floating frame. I loved the blending process - these were fun!

April 2024

Hi again! April has been a very active month! I’ve concentrated on seascapes and waves, trying out new styles and developing wave techniques. Ive been building my portfolio and geeing ready for South East Open Studios in June. I’ve also had two pieces in an exhibition in Canterbury. Follow me on Instagram as I post new paintings throughout the month. Let me know what you think! Speak soon, Kate :)

Loved working out how the light shines through the water! This is oil on wood. 8x10ins

March 2024

Hello! February figure month expanded into March, though I went in a new direction style-wise! Really enjoyed the mixed-media working with acrylic, pen, charcoal, and pastel… I think I’ll do some more. Follow me on Instagram as I post new paintings throughout the month. Let me know what you think! Speak soon, Kate :)

February 2024

Hey there! Well, if January was my seagull month (a with a Raven thrown in for good measure!) February is a month for focusing of figure-work, and what better muse than my daughter, Grace? It’s great to work from a subject I know so well. Follow me on Instagram as I post new paintings of Grace throughout the month. Let me know what you think!Speak soon, Kate :)

Continuing with oil paint and delving through old photos of Grace when she was small. ‘Grace with a fishing net’ Oil on Canvas board, 30x40cm

January 2024

Here we go! After taking some time out which included having a baby a whopping fourteen years after my other child, I am now open for commissions once again. Exciting!

I got stuck straight into working with oil paint and produced this wee chap! I’ve called him Stephen (ha). He’s looking a tad lonely though… let’s see if we can’t paint him a friend or two. ‘Seagull #1’ Oil on Canvas, 30x30cm
