Kate Leslie graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Curtin University in 2004. Kate has held solo and group exhibitions in Australia and New Zealand, recently exhibiting as a finalist in the National Contemporary Art Awards New Zealand and Wellington Regional Art Award. Kate is currently based in Perth where she is creating a new body of works from her C19 inspired home studio.
Kate’s work celebrates the everyday, the feminine and the natural environment. From fabulous divas to daytime naps, dreamy landscapes and jumping fish. Kate has a great understanding of colour which is evident in her work, she executes this in layers combining soft, fluid marks with line and bold brush strokes. Kate has extensive experience facilitating weekly art workshops for artists with intellectual disability, including residents of Nulsen Disability Services, Mixed Palette Inc. and As We Are.
