About the Artist
Kate Giles grew up in Norfolk. Having completed a degree in English at New College Oxford (BA Hons Eng Lit) she trained at Camberwell and Falmouth Schools of Art (BA Hons FA). She has exhibited regularly ever since, particularly in London and East Anglia but also internationally. Her work can be found in numerous public and private collections in the UK and abroad including the Britten Pears Foundation, Aviva and Banco Sabadell. Exhibitions have arisen from a variety of commissions and residencies (e.g. at The National Theatre, The Whitechapel Bell Foundry and Kazan Cathedral, St Petersburgh.) Her work has, for many years, mainly focused on a keen and intimate vision of the landscape of her native East Anglia. From 2005 she lived and worked in Suffolk (Butley Mills Studios) and now divides her time between studios in London and Norfolk. Her work was hung alongside that of Constable, Turner, Creffield and Kossoff in an exhibition at the Salisbury Museum running from September 2016 to March 2017.
