Kate Taylor

My art is a joyful interpretation of nature. Inspiration so often comes to me at the cottage with its evocative soundtrack of loons, lapping water and wind ruffling Maples and Pines; that’s really where I connect and feel most like myself. The distinct feelings of grounded calm and dynamic movement that happens so beautifully in the natural world really resonates with me…positive/negative, energy/calm, push/pull of the Lake. I create with those seemingly opposing energies always in my mind’s eye.

By limiting myself to a palette knife and a softly worn cotton cloth I aim to let the shapes and movement of each piece be very approachable. I’m fascinated by the way the wood grain ripples and travels like water tributaries. I tend to be associated with vibrant confident colour. And it’s really true, my internal palette is overflowing with jewel tones, from tranquil turquoise to dramatic magenta. Strong colour makes me feel bold, strong, unique…a feeling I hope collectors feel as well
