Having featured landscape painter Fiona Sturrock in March, Larks Gallery in Ballater has announced that it is featuring Katherine Rae in April. Drawing and painting have always been an integral part of Katherine’s life: visiting her grandfather’s studio and surrounded by the smell of paint and the glorious colours, she says, ‘I knew from a very early age that a place like this was where I belonged. Following in his footsteps I graduated from Glasgow School of Art. My love of colour and texture found residence with Interior Design, a field I worked in for many years before returning to the easel. The staggering landscape of North East Scotland is now a constant inspiration for my paintings. Preferring to see beyond the realism, I hunt for the architecture using colour and texture, presenting work that invites a contemplation without prejudice.’
