There are so many phenom painters here in Charleston. This town either breeds it or attracts it. I'm not sure which. Either way, I like it. Meet Kate. Her bold colors, contrast and thick shadows just make me feel courageous. She's another painter I'm going to add to my growing collection. And, it's just in time for that spring time clean-out/art-switcharoo, color-swap kind of season. Her fantastic little show was at Candlefish. Check her out! You can purchase from her directly, too. Go, Kate!
