Kate is a self-taught artist who lives and creates in Pasadena, CA. In 2004, found herself in need of an artistic outlet. She began creating two-dimensional thematic montages using imagery from various magazines and clip art sources. With further exploration and a new-found confidence, she began to pursue a different direction, creating, original, three dimensional collages. Later exploring the creative world of mixed media and assemblage and fell in love with both of these media. In 2014 she started exploring the unlimited potential of abstract painting. Creating work purely from my own mind, without borrowing images or objects to bring the work to life, has been an exhilarating experience.
Now finding great joy, working in abstract painting and assemblage. Through her research she found inspiration in the work of artists such as Salvador Dali, Joseph Cornell and Kurt Schwitters: and more recently, the paintings of Wassily Kandinsky and Joan Miro. Watching the documentary “The Radiant Child” about the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat had a deep impact on her and strive to create work, not in his style, but that that has the freedom and spontaneity of his.
In 2012 she had the great pleasure of seeing the exhibit “Wonderland – The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States”. This exhibit profoundly affected her. Finding kindred spirits in Louise Nevelson, Frida Kahlo and Remedios Varo and the work they have created.
