Self Portrait in Mirror by Kate Sammons 20×16 Oil
Kate Sammons. Her work will take your breath away. She paints beautiful Floral/Still Life’s, wonderful Watercolors and stunning Figurative works and more! Kate did a wonderful pastel, MY MOTHER, and it is just beautiful! All I can think is HOW? It’s a gift, for sure!
This painting, Self Portrait in Mirror is such an interesting composition. I love the key in her hand, there is a story there, and I love a story! An exquisite, interesting, “make-you-think” painting! I love that the door is open, so much interest!
Read a bit about Kate, from her website (and check out her fabulous paintings!). HINT: It’s very impressive! This lady has talent!:
“Kate Sammons was born in Seoul, Korea, naturalized as a US citizen one year later and raised in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois. Early in life she exhibited a flair for arts and crafts that developed later into a passion for art.In 2002 she graduated from the University of Ilinois with a BFA in painting before continuing on to study and apprentice at several studios to focus on representational painting. Sammons started her professional career in 2007, going on to exhibit work in galleries and museums around the country including the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery and the Butler Institute of American Art. Her paintings have been featured in magazines such as Fine Art Connoisseur, The Artist’s Magazine and American Art Collector, among others. With a blend of representation and imagination, her work is described as beautiful and refined with a lighthearted spirit that reflects her personality. Among the varied subjects she paints, she often returns to themes of humanity with nature that incorporate dreamlike imagery and personal emotion.
Sammons moved to Los Angeles in 2010, teaching art part time and creating studio work. Since then Kate appears locally at exhibitions like the annual California Art Club Gold Exhibition and the LA Art Show. In addition to seasonal shows, her art is available for purchase at several exclusive galleries in Palm Desert, Santa Fe, Denver and Orleans. From the beginning of her career, Kate has been dedicated to preserving the traditions of fine art, making originality and handcrafted quality the hallmarks of her brand. Her annual production is low as each painting is entirely unique in its identity and design. At the heart of Kate’s enterprise is a taste for art that is independent of popular conventions- timeless, distinctive and free in spirit.”
