Kate Pettitt is an artist and designer living and working in York.
‘I’ve always been a scribbler and am passionate about colour. I like to paint at a scale that allows me to be gestural, using light and shade, colour and texture to create work that is from an emotional source. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks are used as references for my paintings, and I use them to trigger memories and feelings when back in the studio. When the British weather allows, I work ‘plein air’ to capture the energy I get when outside in the elements.’
