Kate Boxer was born in Sussex in 1961. Kate is a skilled print maker as well as an accomplished artist, with her sure sense of line and unusual colour. Kate started her artistic career in the early 1990s taking classes in London art schools and has exhibited in galleries and at art fairs since 1994.
The film maker Bruno Wolheim has written about her work and her ‘idiosyncratic and deeply felt’ subject matter. He points out how in her cowboy paintings ‘Howard Hawks meets high camp, High Sierra and Frank O’Hara. High fun meets high seriousness.’ Discussing her animal images in paint and print, Wolheim notes their ‘engaging eccentricity’ that comes ‘from a fierce understanding of their innate spirit. The snake, bison, or sand-bird are above all themselves, they express their own independence and individuality, with all the implicit comic tragedy… they are free.’
