"The Art Critics"

A sneak peek at new exhibit with a dash of giggle-ingredient coming in 2021. 

There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know. I hope you enjoy my site and take a moment to drop me a line.

Kate's Medium

Textures, Rhythms, Imagination

Kate’s favorite medium is oil paint.  She creates unique and beautiful tones and hues by starting with a translucent under painting of ink or oil paint washes, and then adding layers of oil glazes to bring out subtle color changes. To tie it all together she uses a combination of direct, reflected and translucent light. The result is dramatic  and powerful.

“Daydreams have always taken me to mysterious places.  When I pick up a brush to paint, my dream world connects to the physical world, and a mysterious force takes my brush and I to a place where all things are possible.” 

Kate's Inspiration

Light, Nature, Texture,  canvas, brush paint and create an oil painting

Kate’s New Renaissance Impressionist style is fresh, and adventurous. She loves brash individualism, color, contrasts, and drama. Kate has always been inspired to express appreciation and gratitude for life through nature’s physical beauty and spiritual vibration. 

Her influences are broad, from the classic masters such as Michelangelo loves his powerful, inspired projects reflecting the human body as the ultimate vehicle for emotional expression. American impressionists John Singer Sargent, and his Edwardian era luxury portraits are another inspiring favorite.  
Georgia O'Keefe's oversized flowers, and Frits Thaulow's impressionist water scenes inspire her color combinations, and rhythmic brush work. 

Artist-Author-Adventure Seeker

Flowers & Gardens

Midnight Mums

Visual heaven for Kate has always been nature in her many forms, and of course, brilliant flower gardens are a favorite source of drama. As an Artist, she is driven to paint them all!

 In every oil painting the elements of earth, wind, fire, and water are all peacefully blended. Kate see's the the fire in color, the wind patterns in leaves, and water currents flow through all her oil paintings. 

Landscape Seasons


 Kate's  Rhythmic  Impressionism style of oil painting is a meld of brush strokes that follow natures rhythms and vibrations which evoke a spiritual connection with the world. Sometimes she uses bold and vibrant brush strokes when she paints. Other times natures rhythm's call her to be subtle, and weave in more intricate brush strokes.  All are designed to entice you to lean in for a closer view of her art.

Creatures Tall & Small

Funny and Fierce Brown Pelican

Kate finds all creatures amazing and often they provide an added giggle ingredient, or a bit of whimsey. Like all her work, the rhythms of nature influence her brush strokes, be it fur or feather, you will find all the textures of nature here. 

Portraits and Interiors New Paintings

Alice in White  - Portrait

Kate paints her daydreams every day,  Her dreams swirl and flow like currents in water, and breezes across open fields. They lead your eyes in a meandering journey around the canvas, only to pause in the pools of color.  the brush strokes that follow the intricacies of natures rhythms. In every garden I see earth, wind, fire, and water. Everything springs from the earth, the fire in the colors, the swirls of wind and currents of water all combine in each of my oil paintings.
