Katharine Dove works from her studio in Montpellier in the heart of Cheltenham. Inspired by the seasonal changes of her surroundings – the Regency buildings, colourful parks and trees of Cheltenham Katharine is drawn to the natural world existing alongside the built environment.
By employing a variety of techniques and experimenting with different media, vibrant colours and textiles Katharine creates interesting effects leaving the subject recognisable but with space for the imagination.
“Colour and texture are key to my work. Painting gives me such pleasure and I hope that my work will give pleasure to others.”
