About The Art
The original painting is graphite, acrylic and gouache on canvas. Kate loves books and flowers which means this is the perfect subject in her eyes. Created a rich array of colors, the wallpaper was inspired by Matisse.
About the Artist
Kate is an artist in pursuit of beauty and optimism. At the age of one she won a painting contest at the county fair and she hasn't looked back since (that award winning painting hangs in her studio). Originally from Tennessee, Kate lives in Chicago with her husband and four children. She taught and wrote curriculum about masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago for many years before making the move to set up a studio practice at home while raising her children.
You'll find bright, gauzy floral washes, simple depictions of interiors and collages. Heavy in color and pattern, while still playful and loose, Kate's paintings are instantly accessible giving off a nice warm glow.
Kate works primarily in watercolor, gouache and acrylic on Arches paper and heavily gessoed canvas. She often plays around with oil pastels, oil sticks and Copic markers.
