Kate Montgomery studied at The Ruskin School of Drawing & Fine Art, St John's College, Oxford and then Royal College of Art in London, graduating in 1992. In the same year Kate was artist in residence at the Prince of Wales' Institute of Architecture. Her work is held in both private and public collections around the world. Kate lives on the south coast: sources for her paintings are found through walking in the Sussex countryside, running by the sea, and the interiors and gardens of Georgian and Victorian houses and museums in Brighton & Hove. Kate's paintings often suggest interior spaces associated with female responsibility, creativity and desire. Silent houses with children playing outside, workrooms, a costume gallery... Real time and space are avoided, permitting personal histories and fictions to be read.
