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.
After college, I moved back to the south coast of Massachusetts with my husband, and took a ten year break from making art in order to start a family. I started painting again in 2016, and haven't looked back since. In addition to being an artist, I am also a stay at home mom to our two kids (ages 7 and almost 3).
I have an undying love for the color blue, and collect palette knives like it's my job. I drink way too much coffee, and enjoy singing loudly to classic rock while I paint in my cellar studio. My favorite things are watching cheesy action movies with my husband, dancing with my kids, and that first cup of coffee on a Sunday morning.
About the Paintings
My work is heavily influenced by the ocean and lakes around New England where I was born and raised, especially the beaches on the south shore of Massachusetts, and Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. I work primarily in acrylics, using palette knives to achieve raw textural marks reminiscent of the rugged New England coastline.
