Alongside her work as a freelance illustrator, Kate Evans has been developing her own fine art practice. Using delicate line drawings and watercolour washes set against large areas of negative space, Kate produces images that reflect the richness of their subject matter.
In her 'Wilderness Series' Kate paints desolate farms in remote areas of America, Scandinavia and Europe. Her work creates a feeling of isolation and space, ultimately depicting the sheer wilderness of these locations. The process of mark-making and experimentation with colour are important elements within Kate's practice. She works in mixed media; using a combination of watercolour, pencil and sometimes oil. This allows Kate the freedom to produce different effects, playing with the transparency of the medium creating deep and layered imagery.
