|"Newlyn School of Art offers some of the best short courses in the UK; taught by some of the most exciting artists working in Cornwall".|
Kate's work is inspired by the wildest regions of Europe. She loves to share her love and enthusiasm for these ‘places at the edge’ in her teaching, as well as in her paintings and writing.
Educated in London, Brighton and Falmouth, Kate is a great believer in life-long learning. She regularly gives talks about her work in Universities from Aberdeen to Innsbruck. Kate qualified to teach over thirty years ago, then worked as a teacher-mentor; she always tries to sensitively draw out the true voice of every student.
Her paintings have been exhibited widely in the UK, including the RA, Jerwood Drawing, and the Discerning Eye. She’s had solo shows in Edinburgh, Halifax, London and locally at Newlyn Art Gallery and in St. Ives.
Kate is also a published writer – her first two books of poetry and paintings were inspired by Iona and Shetland.
Kate teaches her own Monotype and Landscape course at Newlyn School of Art, and is one of the main Tutors on the Mentoring, Defining Practice and Studio Practice year long courses.
