Kate Mary is a Glasgow-based visual artist working predominantly with oil pastels, ink, and acrylic. She completed her honours degree in Interior Design at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2019. Kate is 2022 winner of the Delphian Gallery Open Call and residency, and has recently exhibited with Auction Collective ‘The Beat Goes On’ London Design Festival with Heals ‘Lockdown Art’ and Murus.
Following a period working in commercial interior design, Kate began drawing daily. She reworks her experience of spaces and travel into vibrant and idealised versions of the world, focusing on interiors and architecture as her main source of inspiration. Small, sensory interests and descriptions will find themselves re-imagined into her pieces, through bold elements such as colour, pattern and botanical textures. Kate’s work celebrates and emphasises the individual joy found in spaces, reminding the viewer of that trip they loved, or reminiscent of a view that filled them with such happiness for the day.
