Hello. 

I'm Kate, a San Diego Native (now living in Seattle) & a creativity enthusiast. I studied Fine Art, with a focus in painting, at Sonoma State University where I received my BA. 

While I love experimenting with mixed mediums, oil painting is my true passion. My work is primarily imaged based. I paint directly from photos after I alter & tweak the picture, putting my own perspective & spin on it. In my opinion the bigger the canvas or panel the better. I love the impact of a large painting & the relationship it allows between the background space & the subject.

I like to create bold, detailed oriented works with a somewhat realistic approach that focuses on the figure. My inspiration comes from people, their energy & those around me. I'm a sucker for vivid colors, subtle patterns & clean simple lines.
