Kate Westbrook

Kate Westbrook was born in Britain and grew up in the U.S.A. and Canada before going to Dartington Hall School in Devon. From there she went to Bath Academy of Art at Corsham and then to Reading University. Later she lived and worked on the East and West coasts of America. The first one-man show of her paintings was held at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in California, in 1965. After travelling in Mexico she returned to England and took up a part-time teaching post at Leeds College of Art. She continues to exhibit her work in solo and group shows. Her work is in many significant public and private collections.

In 1974 she joined the Mike Westbrook Band and gave up teaching to concentrate on the dual career of painter and musician. She has performed all over Europe and as far afield as the far East and North America. As a singer/songwriter she is featured on more than 20 albums, and she has worked in theatre, radio, and TV.

"In the landscape I make drawings and colour sketches through the seasons. The wind, sun, rain, in my eyes fracture the image as I work. In the studio I make a painting from the studies. If I am in danger of losing the true relationship with the landscape, I go back and draw, paint again. I like to think of this process as an ongoing dialogue with the landscape. In the recent past I have returned to painting the human figure and I am currently exploring the figure in landscape." Kate Westbrook
