Adrian Hill Fine Art Presents:

Kate Morgan RI


Complex and imaginative in composition, Kate’s work celebrates the plants, animals and insects found in a variety of global habitats with particular reference to indigenous and endangered species. Whilst extensive research informs every painting, Kate imagines habitats from a new perspective, fusing the real with the unreal.

Having obtained her first degree in fine art, Kate subsequently studied at postgraduate level at the Glasgow School of Art and then at Falmouth University where she was awarded her Masters degree.

Kate’s work forms part of many international private collections.
