Kate Cleland’s passion for creating endured from her childhood in Western Australia through her relocation to Calgary, Canada, where she currently resides. With a love of bold colours, natural materials, and the simplicity of hard-edged painting, her distinctive style has gradually evolved. Kate has undertaken many forms of informal art education that have contributed to the collection you see today. Her works are simplified, abstracted interpretations of landscapes, streets, and infrastructure, inspired by topographical views from an airplane window. Kate’s process is to integrate the beauty of raw canvas, smooth out everyday forms, and give them bold acrylic colour.
