Kate Wilson is an artist living and working in South London. She draws and paints the familiar objects of her daily landscape, exploring the relationship between the natural and the manmade and questioning what is beautiful and what is ugly.
She studied fine art painting at Winchester School of Art and the R.A. Schools and is a winner of the Royal Academy Gold medal and a Bateson Mason Drawing Award. For most of her professional life, she has balanced painting with teaching and motherhood and was Head of Programme for Painting, Drawing and Art History at Morley College until 2020.
Kate has shown with independent galleries such as the Cadogan Contemporary and the Rona Gallery and in public spaces such as Salisbury Arts Centre and Guildford Cathedral. Recent group exhibitions include ING Discerning Eye, The New English Art Club and the R.A. Summer Show. Her book “Drawing and Painting: Materials and Techniques for Contemporary Artists” is published by Thames and Hudson.
