Kate Davis Caldwell | Bio

 

Kate Davis Caldwell was born in 1976 in the great garden state of New Jersey and currently lives and works in sunny Los Angeles. She earned her B.A. in Studio Art from the University of Vermont and her MFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York.

 

Throughout her career, her work has spanned the arc of abstraction to realism and back again, maintaining underlying concepts of nature and ambiguity at its core. Recent paintings and drawings investigate concepts of change, adaptation and psychology of place as it applies to the artmaking process. Always influenced by landscape and the surrounding environment, her work continues to unravel the complex, natural world.
