Hi, I'm Kat thanks for visiting my page.
My bright, bold and playful style is all about creating a connection with the beauty and joy of the natural world. Too often we are rushing around focused on a million things when actually just stopping to smell the roses, literally, can bring us back to ourselves.
When you open a package from Plant Based Paintings I want you to experience that excitement that I got from that first spark of inspiration, to painting it, creating it and packing it with care.
Every order over £3 plants a tree in the Amazon rainforest and is packaged in a plastic free, eco conscious way.
It's all about connecting with nature and feeling great about it!

A dream of a life
Why it is never too late to create more joy
After leaving school I studied first graphic design, then fine art up to university level. I adored my time at art college but university was sadly quite disappointing as they made it clear that making a career out of art was an exclusive club and that making a success out of it was extremely rare.
I left my course early, trusting their opinion, and went on to get a sensible job instead. At home on maternity leave nearly two decades later, I was made redundant and it really hit home that it was now or never to actually pursue my art.
That was in 2019 and since then I have sold lots of art and my business has planted lots of trees! And what is most important to me is that I am inspiring my daughters to live their dreams too.
I will never again listen to people who tell me things are not possible...now with the internet any artist or crafter can get their art into the world and I can't wait to see where this experience takes me next.
