Kate is an East Coast artist whose work focuses on the relationships between people and their environments. Her subject matter often depicts coastlines and different types of industry.  Kate's preferred media are oil painting and sculpture and her installation work is usually a cooperation of both disciplines. Her current body of work requires source images that she takes from flying in a helicopter across North America. 

      Her studio is in Charleston, SC and she is currently enjoying an Artist Residency in Motherhood, established by Lenka Clayton. Kate is completing her MFA in Studio Art at Maryland Institute College of Art.
