Capturing character, essence, and soulfulness is what it’s all about! Portraits and atmospheric scenes are my speciality, bringing alive precious memories of people, pets and places.




Kate Marr works as an oil painter in Bournemouth, UK and has been a professional artist for the last decade. Her style is a fusion of modern impressionism and realism with a lively use of brush marks. Kate’s oil paintings are lively, colourful and atmospheric, painting people and pet portraits, flowers, landscapes and seascapes.
