Kate Walker

Kate has always been interested in art, and the relationship between art and the natural world. As a nineteen years old, Kate completed her Art Foundation at the Adelaide Central School of Art in South Australia, receiving a thorough tutoring in the visual arts, with particular focus on the discipline of life drawing and went on to a B.A.(Hons) in Fine Art at Bournemouth Arts Institute. She has lived in diverse places such as Australia, the Isle of Mull on Scotlandís west coast, London and Suffolk being inspired by the differing landscapes and light qualities of each area. In the years since she has returned to a more traditional style of art making, and her true passion, life drawing. Her local landscape of the Waveney Valley in Suffolk, with itís wide swathes of lush grazing marsh, pellucid dykes and tranquil rivers under a vast sky never fail to move Kate. She walks through this beautiful place on a daily basis, noting the subtle seasonal shifts and taking inspiration for a series of oil based landscape paintings. Kate has also gained a Royal Horticultural Society qualification in Horticulture and Garden Design. She exhibits from her studio at 48 The Street, Geldeston, Beccles, Suffolk (actually Geldeston is in Norfolk) at the Aldeburgh Gallery
