Capturing the character, essence, and soulfulness of each individual is what it’s all about! Portraits and atmospheric scenes are my speciality, bringing alive precious memories of people, pets and places.




Kate Marr works as a painter in Bournemouth, UK. Her desire is to bring out the character of each individual in every piece, and create atmospheric art for people to treasure. Her style is realistic and lively, using paint to capture special moments. Kate takes inspiration for her art from all areas of her life, influences from contemporary, traditional and impressionist art and enjoys working with customers on commissions. Kate has been a professional artist for the last decade, where she has undertaken many commissions, and exhibited in galleries.


Please contact me and let me know your commission idea. We can look at composition, size, price, arrange some sittings or look at your photos etc. Oil paintings can be created quickly, I usually work wet into wet in 1 or 2 layers. When they are touch dry they can be displayed. After 1 year they can be varnished. I use high quality archival products and offer framing, prints and a UK / International postage service.

“I asked Kate to do a portrait of my girlfriends cat for Christmas and the final drawling was absolutely superb. The drawing was done in the exact style I requested and I was kept fully updated on the progress of it. I would absolutely recommend Kate! ”

“My Gran loved the portrait, thank you so much. We would rate you and your service 5 stars. You really helped us out at such a busy time of year. The portrait was lovely and was such a great likeness. It was sent and received very quickly from me approving the final picture sent. It was well packaged to keep it safe. You kept constant contact throughout so we were kept up to date. Thank you so much for such an amazing service.”

“Kate provided a professional, friendly and efficient service from start to finish. Guiding us through the process and helping us to make a decision for which medium and size painting to choose. Kate did a lovely photo shoot with our children and then we chose a photo for her to work from to create our beautiful portrait. We now have a heart warming, delightful painting that captures our precious children so well and we can treasure this piece of art forever. Thank you!”
