Featured Artist of the Month
Kate Paul
September 1 - 28, 2014

Artist Reception
September 11, 2014

Born in upstate New York and raised in northern England, Kate Paul has had a varied art career involving photography, graphics and as a scenic painter before establishing her own commissioned painting business.

As a scenic painter, coming up through the guild system, life took her to Los Angeles where she met her "mister" at a scenery shop working in films, theatre and television. Together they relocated to Seattle, WA where Kate started her own commission painting business in 1992.

She has been working as a decorative artist for the design trade as well as on her own fine artwork. She and her "mister" relocated to his home state of Michigan in 1995.

You can find her mural work in many private residences and in some public venues, such as: Gest Omelets in West Bloomfield, Gilda's Club in Royal Oak and the Royal Oak Public Library.

Kate's fine artwork is shown in many local galleries and exhibitions.
Her biggest accomplishment to date is as an ovarian cancer survivor since 2010.

Artist Statement

As we superimpose our understanding and symbology onto the natural world, there is a magic to life that we aren't to know, that we can't touch but know is there. These painting represent my desire to find magic in the world. I am under the influence of a spirited disposition, a curiosity of colour, mythologies of all sorts and a fortune cookie mentality of how to understand the natural and manmade world.

The show will run September 1-28
