Kate now works full-time as an artist in her studio on Gubbi Gubbi land, (Noosa). Being immersed in nature is essential for balanced living and nurturing Kates creativity. Exploring her ever evolving fascination with human form. Keeping the subject matter the same allows Kate to fully explore the many directions of her practice, embracing many different styles of painting. As a process driven artist Kates main focus and source of motivation is getting lost in the process. She likes to work without a finished concept in mind, so that she connects freely with her intuitive creative flow, allowing her energy to be transferred freely into her work. Kate sees her practice as a continual space for growth, embracing both failure and the unpredictable nature of being an artist, harnessing self belief, she very much feels like she is just at the beginning of her creative journey.
“For me, creating art is an emotional conduit, an outlet to express what words cannot capture. When I paint, I am fully present, allowing myself to be absorbed by the brush strokes and canvas, following the path it takes me on. Embracing spontaneity, I deliberately avoid over-planning my work, allowing my ideas to flow freely and unrestricted.” Kate says
