Kathryn Neale

By October 13, 2017 Uncategorized

Kathryn Neale is an award-winning painter who lives and works in St. Louis. She primarily works in acrylics but also experiments in multi-media, collage, and chalk paints on a variety of surfaces. Her visual inspiration is sourced from the interior design and home decorating industries, specifically traditional floral wallpaper and textile patterns from the UK/Europe. Color is also another important aspect of her work, primarily drawing from pre-mixed palette swatches from hardware stores. In the past, Kathryn has also been a graphic designer and this design tradition has certainly been consistent influence in all of her work. The attraction to patterns and graphic elements is inspired by a sense of structure that plays against the way she paints, a fast and undetermined process, which is inherently intuitive and spontaneous. Kathryn’s artwork has been widely exhibited throughout the United States in galleries, museums, and hotels. She is also featured in many private collections and in publications including Manifest 6th International Painting Annual, Studio Visit Magazine, Creative Quarterly, and New American Paintings annual publication. Aside from making art, she is a mom to her 4 year old son and a part-time yoga instructor. https://www.artblend.com/kathryn-neale/
