ABOUT

 Personal statement:

 

 “I am intensely motivated by emotions, unique moments in time, adventures and

  visual stimuli. Combining this with my passion for street art alongside texture,

  scrap and natural resources, I attempt to create, in abstract form, my own

  interpretations of many personal experiences and feelings. I paint using acrylic as a

  medium with textures and scrap metal in part. Utilizing fibres, fabrics and papers, 

  handmade and people’s discarded waste, I like to recycle as much as possible,

  turning remnants and ‘rubbish’ into beautiful creations, albeit dark at times, from

  my own perceptions.”

 

  Kate Cox is a Worcestershire artist specializing in abstract painting, textiles and

  paper making, with commitment towards exhibiting and involvement in

  community/recycled arts ventures. 

 

  All commissions, collaborations and enquiries welcome.
