Welcome to my new look website, I hope you enjoy discovering a little more about me and my work.
Living on a Pembrokeshire small holding (two miles from the coast) provides the perfect inspiration my work. Strolling the coastal path with the dogs, is a great way to plan my next creative adventure.
I am so excited to share my explanation of my work in the Artist Statement below. Check out my Portfolio for images of past and present work. My Shop is constantly being extended with more works being added in the next few weeks, so please keep watching.
2022 promises to be a sensational year, with exhibitions in Cardigan, Picton Castle and Tregwynt Mansion. I will be busy completing children’s book illustrations and teaching batik, watercolours and oil painting to Pembrokeshire based art groups.
If you are interested in purchasing or commissioning any work please either contact the me directly via the site’s CONTACT page or you can purchase paintings via the ArtFinder link https://www.artfinder.com/kate-kelly#/ thanks !
Coastal living is the foundation of my work – whether it be stormy seas, dramatic light and shadow, stretching vistas to the horizon or just my fascination of the natural edges between land and sea. I am surrounded by fresh air and the textures of nature – how can a painter fail to be moved !!
Music is my ‘mood’ inspiration while I paint, to help me capture my emotional response. I approach a project by exploring the ‘idea’ through three artworks, experimenting to keep it all very fresh and exciting. My work is unlike a photograph – it represents a more personal vision of the subject through the techniques applied, chosen colours and textures, to provide an impression. So it should be no surprise to know that the following artists influence my work : Cezanne, Monet, Van Gogh, Chagall, Klimt, Pollock, Matisse & Hundertwasser. I work mostly in oils, oil pastels and watercolour and always enjoy making the most of a happy accident!
