In her respective genre, Kate Leffler’s paintings are a benchmark of exploration and color. She runs the gamut in versatility of medium and technique. Though classically trained, and her primary passion is oil paint, her art remains untethered in her combinations of mediums, always expanding. Occasionally criticized by conventional art critics for the fact that she works in several evolving styles and “Would be hard to put into a category”, her art exudes a form of continuity. This carries over into all her work and is easily decipherable and enjoyed by her collectors. She has gone to great lengths to research her subject matter before setting upon a new one for a series. Some of this research has caused her great joy as well as great danger, but the outcome shows an evolved sophistication in her work. Her art is her communication.
