Kate K. approaches her work as an artist with joy and purpose. She is inspired by all areas of her life to create work infused with peaceful yet vibrant energy. Kate attended the College of Charleston and studied business and studio art. Post college, Kate enrolled in summer art courses at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at George Washington University. Now an emerging artist in Richmond, Virginia, Kate is known for her soft florals, colorful Zen Blocks, and her joyful motherhood series. She is often drawn to painting marshes, too, evoking the low country and sea island landscapes of her youth.
Kate prefers to work with watercolors as her medium. She finds watercolors to be ever-changing, unpredictable, and hard to control. When Kate sits down to paint, she doesn’t sketch or plan her first strokes — she lets the water flow until they find a rhythm together. She is often surprised by what appears, which is both a challenge and a joy that keeps her returning to her sunroom studio, often late into the night while her son sleeps upstairs. When describing her art, Kate talks about it as a living, breathing being that eventually dries, ending its evolution and leaving a permanent mark on paper. When viewed through this perspective, it is hard not to feel a pull towards her pieces.
