Kate Evans graduated from Falmouth College of Art in 2006 and has been working as an illustrator and fine artist ever since. She is based at Jamaica Street Artists’ Studios, Bristol.
Using delicate line drawings and watercolour washes set against large areas of negative space, she produces images that reflect the richness of their subject matter. The process of mark-making and experimentation with colour are important elements. Kate works in mixed media; using a combination of watercolour, pencil and sometimes oil. This allows her the freedom to produce different effects, playing with the transparency of the medium creating deep and layered imagery.
In her most recent ‘Wilderness Series’ she paints desolate farms in remote areas of America, Scandinavia and Europe. Her work creates a feeling of isolation and space, ultimately depicting the sheer wilderness of these locations.
