Featured artist Kate Jenvey appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Six (6). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.
Kate Jenvey has loved drawing all her life. Her early years in East Africa were exciting and filled with adventurous safaris, wildlife naturally became her inspiration. She painted and exhibited her first “blue-eyed” lion at the tender age of five.
After settling in Australia, Kate was able to realize a childhood dream of riding and breeding horses. Her fascination with these enchanting creatures also inspired her to portray their beauty and diversity.
Kate’s chosen media are graphite, color pencils, and oils. She chooses a realistic approach to my work, adding her own artistic expression to nature’s awesome beauty.
A lifetime of traveling and studying animals has given Kate the opportunity to observe and study many of the world’s great creatures. Her ability to capture the majesty and wonder of these animals is portrayed in the amazing work she has produced. She is a woman with enormous empathy towards her subjects.
Kate is a professional artist working in the media of oil, graphite, and colored pencils with nature as her inspiration, mainly wildlife and horses.
