Kate & Sara's Fine Art and Illustration
Medium: Oil, Watercolor, Digital
Description: Illustrated greeting cards and vibrant pastoral scenes in oil
Kate Tortland has always loved art of all kinds; as a child constantly making tinfoil dresses for dolls, forts in the woods, designing paper handbags, and drawing hundreds of galloping horses. When she turned fourteen she began painting using oils, instructed in both plein air and studio work. She attended college at Gordon in Massachusetts, where she double majored in fine art and elementary education. From there she journeyed all over the globe, from Ireland to Italy, France, to Japan and back again painting and roaming the cities and hills. Kate lives in Connecticut where she paints and teaches. Sara Plante spent an enormous portion of her youth reading every fantastical tale she could find. Choosing to pursue illustration was a natural extension of her passion for narrative. She received her BFA in Illustration from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Art and has since continued to hone her skills while working towards a freelance career in the publishing industry.
