Kate Montgomery

Born in Berkshire in 1965 , Kate Montgomery was brought up in the Oxfordshire countryside. She studied at The Ruskin School of Drawing & Fine Art. University of Oxford (1985 -88) and at The Royal College of Art, London (1990 – 1992) under Professor Keith Critchlow.

 

Kate lives on the south coast: sources for her paintings are found through walking in the Sussex countryside, running by the sea, and the interiors and gardens of Georgian and Victorian houses and museums in Brighton and Hove.┬áHer paintings often suggest interior spaces associated with female responsibility, creativity and desire – silent houses with children outside, workrooms,…a costume gallery. Real time and space are avoided, permitting personal histories and storytelling narratives to be read or withheld.
