Kate Woodley studied Visual Communication Design and has been involved in antique restoration in London and New Zealand for nearly 30 years. Her specialisation is in paint effects and gilding. She occupies a studio under the name Art & Interiors in Christchurch. Kate is interested in textures of old paintings and crackle glazing, painting trees, avenues, horizons and the textures of the Canterbury sky. The works are framed with hand gilded imitation gold leaf.
Bringing traditional landscape paintings into a contemporary context, scenes we are all so familiar of, finished with a crackle glaze and beautiful hand gilded frames, creating a resemblance of antique, historic paintings, with a new lease on life.
