Kate Beagan is an Irish Artist currently living in Co. Monaghan. She has exhibited throughout Ireland and Australia. Over the years she has won many art awards such as the Australian Rotring award for Drawing and the Henry Chapman award for watercolour.
Simplicity would seem to be an identifying factor in Kate’s work, but simplicity is a deceiving concept. Using light and colour, she reveals the essence of the subjects she selects to paint. Children playing at the shore are among her most popular images, with landscapes and village scenes coming in a close second.
Her subject matter ranges from broad sweeping landscapes, beach scenes to townscapes. There is an underlying warmth to her work. Her style is figurative, romantic and moody. Kate’s work has been purchased by the Department of Health and the Department of Justice
Kate has been included into the ” Irish art buyers guide” 2015 as one of the top 5 collectable artists. This publication comes out every few years only
