 Kate Starling
Kate Starling is an oil painter who lives and works in the canyons of southern Utah. Educated in geology, she spent years working outside as a geologist and National Park ranger. After formal academic art training from 1988 - 1995 she devoted her work to painting the landscape. Educated in the importance of painting directly from observation she has spent years painting outside, learning the way light plays on the land. Now she splits her time between the roadways and trails surrounding her home and the studio.

"I live in the heart of the American southwest and I need travel no further than out my door to paint this unique beauty," Kate says. "Whether I am driving a dirt back road or hiking to a favorite water pocket I find limitless inspiration in this landscape.  Constantly surprised by the nuance shaped by light and the season, or the drama created by weather, I can experience it as if new. This land triggers emotions in me that I strive to paint in such a way that memory and emotion is triggered in the people who see my work."

Kate’s paintings portray the natural world and focus on communicating a sense of place, atmosphere and dazzling light, retaining the immediacy of the painting experience. She knows the strength of emotion that the landscape seen in a particular light can trigger in her – she strives to paint in such a way that memory and emotion are triggered in the people who see her work.

"As I have grown older and more confident in my ability to paint I find myself painting for different reasons than I once did," she says. "While the adventure of exploration of both the land and my journey as a painter had been enough I am now determined to impart the beauty of this land of ours, the open space and the value that it adds to our lives."
