“The Artist in nothing without the gift

but the gift is nothing without the work.” 

Emile Zola

Kate Larsson is a nationally recognized NW artist.  She was a marketing executive for a major US company for 28 years and then found a love for painting in 1996.   She began teaching herself to paint and within 2 years she had been accepted into her first Gallery and had her first solo show.  Three years later, she retired from Xerox and began her second career as a Professional Watercolor artist. 

Her Original Watercolors are on display in Galleries throughout the West Coast, including Gallery Row in Gig Harbor, WA.  She also reproduces images of her work on ceramic art tiles and coasters, blank cards, computer mouse pads, tempered glass cutting boards and as Gallery Quality Giclee reproductions.  She wholesales her work in over 196 gift shops, boutiques and nurseries, throughout the U.S. and recently, her piece, “Koi Pond” was selected to be sold as an art tile nationally by Signals catalog.  All of these reproductions are made by her two assistants, Rachael and Chandel, in Kate’s Gig Harbor Studio.

In addition to showing her work in West Coast Galleries and on her website, Kate participates in 14 Fine Art Festivals including shows in Washington, Idaho, Arizona, California, Oregon, and New Mexico. Kate also participates in Juried Shows and her work has been added to collections throughout the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Sweden, and England.
