Kate Barry Artist

Kate Barry’s artistic style is driven by her intuitive and emotional responses to landscapes and the energy of human interconnection.


Her bold and immersive paintings represent a physical demonstration of her imagination, memories and conversations.

Kate Barry’s raw style means an unquestionable authenticity comes across in her artworks, drawing in the viewer to connect in an almost primal way.

Built-up layers find a voice on the canvas and stunning compositions arise from balancing opposing angles and strokes, play with proportion and an exciting use of colour and texture.

Returning to abstract painting after working for 25 years as a graphic designer in the book publishing industry, Kate Barry has exhibited her paintings throughout Australia and is represented in galleries in Brisbane and Sydney. Kate has sold privately and by commission in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland and Christchurch. As well as being exhibited, Kate has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, has been commissioned to create artworks for ABC Television series and in Virgin Airlines inflight entertainment videos and magazines.

Limited Edition prints are available of her paintings. For these pieces, Kate uses 100 per cent cotton rag premium fine art paper, with a guaranteed archival quality of more than 90 years, ensuring each piece lasts a lifetime.
