More about Kate's work: 

Kate says, "My recent work is a series of paintings based on my garden. I also make floorcloths, painted jewelry boxes, decorated cigar boxes and decorated mirrors. 
Thanks for looking at my work!!
I have a degree in Fine Art from the University of Cincinnati. I have shown and sold my work in Chicago, Boston, Santa Fe, and in the Triangle area of North Carolina where I now reside. I am a member of the Chatham Artists Guild and have participated in their annual Studio Tour for over 16 years. 
I paint with acrylics on canvas and also have a business in which I do murals, faux finishing and floorcloths.
My work has been shown at the Cincinnati Art Museum, Elaine Horwitz Gallery and the Armory for the Arts in Santa Fe, a 2 man show in Chicago, the Arts Center in Carrboro, NC, the Chatham Arts Gallery, Side Street Gallery in Pittsboro, NC, the Carolina Brewery, and FRANK gallery in Chapel Hill.
I love to paint and to make floorcloths! I have made floorcloths as big as 8 x 10 feet. I'm also an avid gardener and love living in zone 7 after many years in the north. I've also lived in Santa Fe, NM and in Mexico and have traveled in Spain. Lots of the ideas for my paintings come from the places I've lived and traveled and from my garden."
