ARTIST’S STATEMENT: Capturing the character, essence, and soulfulness of each individual is what it’s all about! Portraits and atmospheric scenes are my speciality, bringing alive precious memories of people, pets and places.
BIOGRAPHY: Kate Marr works as an artist in Bournemouth, UK, specialising in portraits and scenic paintings. Her desire is to bring out the character of each individual in every piece, and create atmospheric art for people to treasure. Her style is realistic and lively, using oil paint, gouache paint or pencil to capture special moments. Kate takes inspiration for her art from all areas of her life, influences from contemporary, traditional and impressionist art and enjoys working with customers on commissions. Kate has been a professional artist for the last decade, where she has undertaken many commissions, and exhibited in galleries.
HOW TO COMMISSION: Please contact me and let me know your commission idea. It is always lovely and exciting to go through the details, decide on a composition, materials, size, framing, postage and timescale. I also ask that you let me know a little about the individual’s character so that I can bring this out in the artwork. Sometimes photos will need to be taken, sittings or a portfolio viewing arranged. Each artwork is bespoke, and I work out each commission with the customer to their requirements. A mock-up will then be confirmed and deposit paid before proceeding with the commission. I keep customers informed throughout the process, letting them know how it is progressing, and when it is likely to be finished. Once finished I will confirm if any changes are needed by the customer until they are delighted with the completed portrait.
