Kate Green began painting dogs after finding a dog starving to death on a country road. So saddened that anyone could allow this to happen to such a beautiful animal, a painting seemed a suitable way to honour Pepper - now one of Kate's own very loved dogs. Kate began painting commissioned paintings in 2006, mainly of dogs, and has now completed over 150 dog portraits. Kate's commissioned work also includes portraits of horses and people. She also paints non-commissioned work of domestic and wild animals, nests and the natural world.
Kate's painting "Pepper" is featured on page 63 of the 2010 Paws For Charity Art Book. “All animals, but particularly dogs, give me so much joy. To paint them and share my love of these wonderful beings with the people who see my work is a great honour.” - Kate
