Kate Fleming, b. 1992

Based in Arlington, VA.

Kate is a painter, printmaker, and muralist. Her most recent body of work is mostly made up of very small oil paintings on paper, painted in one sitting, from life. Each of these paintings — of which Kate has made over 100 — captures a specific moment in time. She paints the in-between spaces and mundane objects we all experience continuously but rarely acknowledge.
