Kate plans to stay local, and find a new space to set up and continue working. Please do not hesitate to continue to reach out about available works or commissions during this time!
Paintings with Purpose
Available on Commission
Kate is now working with interior decorators, home owners, and businesses to create large pieces for specific spaces. Each piece is carefully designed to co-ordinate with each environment, to complement the overall mood, while maintaining a unique artistic ownership. Art is an incredible way for anyone looking to refresh, update, and modernize a space, as well as invest in something that will be valuable for years to come.
Always loving beauty, and having a passion for creation of all kinds, it was only natural that Kate pursued a career in the art world. At the age of fourteen she began painting with local impressionist painter Catherine Elliott, where she discovered a love for plein air oil painting. She had her first show at age eighteen, and after graduating college with a fine art degree and honing her skills, she began showing her work in galleries across New England, including Concord, Rockport, and Martha's Vineyard. Kate also graduated with a degree in art education, so for a few years she taught art in a private school, eventually leaving to teach privately and paint full time from her studio in Simsbury, Connecticut.
Kate has traveled extensively around the world, spending time in Italy, France, Ireland, and Japan and these travels have seriously influenced the art she creates. She married a native Italian after meeting him on one of her trips to Orvieto, Italy, and they plan on settling in the states, but spending time each year abroad to create, and find inspiration.
In 2013, Kate became the youngest artist represented by The Christina Gallery, a high end fine art venue in the renowned Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard. Her paintings are displayed alongside world recognized artists such as William R. Davis, and John C. Traynor.
Using her unique approach, Kate creates small vignettes of life on the Vineyard, and puts a new spin on traditional scenery.
