Kathy Ramsay Carr was born in Kent but her formative years were spent in British Columbia, a country which she has returned to many times and holds a big place in her heart for its natural beauty.
She trained at Bath Academy of Art, Corsham in the 1970s, and after graduating returned to B.C. travelling for four months before starting work as a graphic designer in Mexico City where she lived and worked for many years, later becoming Head of Design in the Cultural Institute of the National University of Mexico. She returned to the UK to raise a family, began painting in the late 1980s and now lives in South West England.
Kathy creates evocative landscapes and seascapes from fragments of memory and emotional responses to places. Her abstract paintings are of solitary wildernesses, inspired by walking on coastlines, beaches and moorland, like Dartmoor. There is often an elevated viewpoint present, as if from flight, and horizons come and go, vanishing into unending distance.
She has exhibited widely in many UK galleries, in London, Bristol, Cardiff and St Ives, and is collected by private and corporative clients.
