Kate Boxer was born in Sussex in 1961 and attended classes in London Art schools in the early 1990s. She has exhibited regularly since 1994 in London and Scotland. She is both a painter and a printmaker.

An artist of immense vitality, generosity and wit, Kate makes striking, engaging, memorable work that reflects these qualities. Her depictions of people, animals and birds are always sympathetic and touching, achieved through the sureness of her line and unusual use of colour. Her works are often very amusing; frequently, she adds her own personal jokes and observations into her titles such as When I was in the Philippines the mud was as yellow as a cocktail and more beautiful even than wild ducks.

The film maker Bruno Wolheim has written about her work and her ‘idiosyncratic and deeply felt’ subject matter. He describes her cowboy paintings as ‘Howard Hawks meets high camp, High Sierra and Frank O’Hara. High fun meets high seriousness.’

‘Kate Boxer paints and makes prints of people, animals and scenes with a fine interior defiance.....their candour is their liveliness, behind them is the same thought of all the wild, dumb animals, beasts and people among them; their rich, futile dreams swinging overhead’ Spencer Ludwig

As George Melly once described Kate Boxer, she is a ‘remarkable creative spirit: her images and the means to realise them are at one.’
