Kat Green

Kat Green is a contemporary abstract painter living and working in her sunny studio in the small town of Weaverville - just outside of Asheville, NC. She produces both small intimate canvases and large scale paintings. She works on paper, canvas and wood panels in mixed media.

Kat was born in South Carolina, where she began her career as an artist and then spent several years living and working in the California desert of Joshua Tree before recently returning to her roots in the Southeast.

She’s been painting professionally for over 20 years, with work in private and corporate collections across the U.S. and abroad.


My paintings are expressionist in nature and focus on the idea of impermanence relative to life and relationships.

Part of my process involves creating “memories” with shape, line and mark and then veiling over them. Sometimes they remain quite vivid, often they’re completely obliterated. Much the way our own memories are processed and held onto or let go.

As with all art, people find their own meanings in them. There’s no literal narrative in the work, as the paintings speak to flux and a natural evolution resulting from time’s passage and our ever-changing nature.

What I’m inspired by and drawn to are the seemingly imperfect elements and moments of change: growth or decay.

Embracing these wabi-sabi principles has become central to both my life and my art making process.

The goal is unearthing and embracing subtle details that beckon the viewer to explore the work more closely.
