Kate was born and brought up in Truro, Nova Scotia. She attained a History degree at Dalhousie University in Halifax, N.S. and attained her Masters of Teaching degree at Griffith University, Southport, Australia. In addition to these post-secondary achievements she also attended the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

Kate's unique style in painting landscapes is what distinguishes her as an outstanding artist. Her unusual twist in perceiving nature adds beauty and interest to her painted scenes.
As well as her original art she has been commissioned to do paintings for her clients and friends. These commissioned paintings include such subjects as summer cottages, homes, boats, and favourite people and scenery. Kate's paintings present a fresh snapshot of The Maritimes and Canadian landscapes
