A fine artist for over 30 years, Kate has concentrated on oil paintings of landscapes and nature.
As an oil painter, Kate specializes in landscapes that suggest the grandeur of nature. Her impressionist style and rich colors invite the viewer to walk into the scene!
Kate grew up in Bedford, New York, and went to college in New England, graduating from Wheaton College in Massachusetts with a B.A. in Art History. She then went on to study fine art at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island, finishing with the equivalent of a B.F.A. in painting.
She has had her work exhibited in juried shows in New Jersey , New England, and Missouri, and has taught both adults and children in private art lessons since 1997.
Kate teaches Paint and Sip style classes, and offers private and group lessons in fine art (drawing, painting, pastel, watercolor) to all ages, children and adults.
I love to travel, and many of my paintings are based on my photographs of places I have visited, such as Italy, France, England, Scotland, Bermuda and North Africa. I also love to paint local favorites such as Cape Cod, Newport, Vermont, and the gardens of New Jersey. When I can, I love to get outside for some 'plein air" painting! The impressionists have always had such an influence on my work, I love the way they use light, color and brushstroke. The sea, gardens and landscapes capture my attention all the time. They make me feel happy, and I hope my artwork does the same for you!
