About the Artist

Hi there! I’m Kate, an abstract painter born and raised just south of Boston, MA. I graduated from Bridgewater State University in 2005 with a degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design. 

As long as I can remember, art has been my way of working through emotions - happiness, anxiety, joy, grief, the list goes on and on. My goal has always been to get back to a state of calm and peace by throwing everything I’m feeling at the canvas. The result is usually a painting that illustrates a push and pull between calm and chaos, similar to how the chaos of the ocean or a good thunderstorm can be strangely soothing.

I think we all strive to bring more serenity into our lives. My hope is that my paintings can bring some of that into your life as well.

So, here’s a little more about me; I currently live on the South Shore of Massachusetts with my husband and two kiddos, ages ages 8 and 3. In addition to being an artist, I am also a stay at home mom and coffee junkie. I have an undying love for the color blue, collect palette knives like it's my job, and have a habit of driving to the beach during rain & snow storms.
