Kate Podmore

Medium: Paintings and Personalised Greeting Cards

“After a 35 year career as a Biomedical Scientist in the UK, I was ready for a change, so 9 years ago my husband and I took early retirement and came to build our dream home in the Serras da Monchique. The house was built in 2 years, the garden, well that’s an ongoing project.

In between garden landscaping with my husband, I help out at the Aljezur International school in a science advisory capacity and any other help they need on the days I am there.

I started to paint 2 or 3 years ago, something I’ve always enjoyed but I have not really had the time to dedicate to it until now.

As I have only been painting ‘seriously’ for 2 or 3 years I am still experimenting with media and styles. I have used oil, pastels and watercolours, but most of my work is in Acrylic paints.

I enjoy painting landscapes / seascapes from drawings and photographs I have taken, either on block canvas board or canvas.

I also produce personalised A6 (10 X 15 cm) greetings cards from a good quality photograph.”

If you have a particular place that has a special meaning for you and have a good photograph, Kate is available for a private commission to create a painting.

She can also make you a personalised A3 greeting card from a photo.
