“I have no plans when I begin to paint, I just start - usually with a leaf”.
Coastal artist Kate Mayes is known for her bold application of colour and contrasting techniques that swing between the use of thick structured paints and watery washes. Inspired by her natural surrounds and guided by intuition - Kate’s paintings evolve over weeks of layering and experimentation in her Torquay based studio.
Known best for her botanical interpretations and deep sea green palettes, Kate’s work can be found at leading interior boutiques and galleries both locally and and internationally.
“It’s finished when it’s finished. I don’t overthink it - the canvas speaks to me, and tells me when its time for tools down.” Kate Mayes.
