Art has always played a part in Kate’s life. She has always had a passion for drawing. Kate studied and worked as a landscape architect, a career which gave her a creative outlet. With the birth of her children came a greater desire to return to painting. Her husband enrolled her on a pastel course with a local artist, and it snowballed from there. She joined a local art club, Harrogate and Nidderdale Art Club, a great source of inspiration and with the encouragement of other members gained confidence in her work. Kate now successfully exhibits her work nationally.
