As a Marketing and Advertising Executive, as well as being a gardener, designing interiors and as a former chef, Kate’s interests have always been in the pursuit of creative endeavors. Painting is, and was, one of her deepest desires. She has studied with some of the most outstanding Plein-air artists in the field, as well as several distinguished local teachers. In 2012 she had the wonderful experience of studying and painting in France. Now as a student of Nicholas Wilton, the Art2Life Academy and a 3-year graduate of the Creative Visionary Program, she put most of her life on hold to explore what makes artists great and why their work excites the spirit. Kate has been painting for 20 years...most of that time in the ”closet”. She is now living as an artist in the open.
Kate lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her writer husband, Doug, and their two pugs.
