Mapping the Arts in Easthampton, Southampton, & Westhampton


Kate Childs


I like to describe my work as meditation in color. The images are are an exploration of the colors and textures of the natural world. The paintings are meant to soothe the viewer, and resonate a sense of stillness. I paint with oils. My paintings are built over time. Layers upon layers are combined with the final painting one of a luminous quality and expansive space. It is my hope that my imagery will transport you, the viewer, back to a quieter time... a place in your being that honors relaxation and contemplation. Kate Childs 2011
