Kate Dawes

Festival: 2022

My work is a hybrid of art and photography, combining artistic skills and photo imagery. The images emphasise the natural beauty of botanicals to create bold graphic art pieces that capture the strong lines, structures and dusty jewel shades of a variety of flowers and foliage. Each piece starts life on watercolour paper and is delicately built up using a wide range of mediums from watercolours, acrylics, to my favourite Caran D’Ache pencil crayons as well as a light touch of black ink pen.
My work is about ‘bringing the outside in’ and draws inspiration from rambling English country gardens.
