Kathy Ramsay Carr
Kathy Ramsay Carr is a professional artist who trained for four years at Bath Academy of Art, Corsham, then travelled across Canada and on to Mexico City where she worked for many years as a graphic designer and illustrator, becoming Head of Design in the Cultural Institute of the National University of Mexico.
On returning to England she worked as an illustrator and printmaker, and has been painting for 25 years. She has exhibited her work in many galleries, in London, Bristol, Cardiff and St Ives as well as supplying paintings for the corporate market and has work in public and private collections.
Kathy's evocative landscapes are composed from fragments of memory, always influenced by the elements and their effect in a moment on either the sea or land as the focus of the image, and the corresponding inner emotions associated with that experience. The essence of what she does is to be still and respond to what comes.Through the stillness comes heightened focus and awareness of the subject.
Her paintings express a desire to journey through the imagery she creates; a sense of elevated viewpoint is often present, as if in flight or from a spiritual presence: horizons are rarely fixed, instead they melt into unending distance.
