Kate Thayer | Painting

The sacred places in nature are fast disappearing. I want to preserve their beauty, their meaning in my paintings, in order to share them with anyone who looks upon them.
— Kate

There is nothing more challenging as a painter of nature than to capture her moods, her forms and colors, and to translate what I see and feel into a painting. I relish the ever changing real thing.

I try to capture nature’s ways. Her beauty, power, mysteries, and all the nuances there in. Painting the landscape connects me to the vitality of nature and enriches my soul. It is my way of preserving the places that called to me to be painted as I see them.

My aim is to bring to the viewer the special places that have touched my heart. My task is to portray how they speak to me without words. The vitality and energy within the forest is life giving. I want to bring to life what adds to life.
