Kate Dardine spent her childhood exploring the woodlands surrounding her Connecticut home. She graduated with a BA in Illustration from Sacred Heart University in Connecticut.
“In my current work, each piece has many layers that peek through, giving the viewer a glimpse into the history of the painting. I try to keep my mind open and receptive to new ideas, always looking for the unexpected. The freer I am with the paint, the less I try to control the results, the better. I am always looking for that sweet spot, where a painting retains spontaneity but has a cohesive feel.” Kate lives in a log home on 11 acres with her husband, horses, dogs, cat and the various wild critters who call the fields “home.” Her work is in national and international corporate and private collections.
She has been juried into and has received awards in national shows.
