Kate uses a process to hand paint photographs that focus almost exclusively on nature

Although she majored in photography at Derby College of Art in England, Montreal-born Kate Taylor also studied with Arthur Lismer at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and successfully pursued a drawing and painting career for many years. In recent years, she has combined the two media, using a unique process to hand paint photographs that focus almost exclusively on nature, “the shapes, patterns of growth, changing seasons, and the decay and regeneration of leafy things.” Now living near Hillsburgh, the multi-award-winning artist says, “The land offers an abundance of material that never ceases to inspire me.” [email protected]
