Hello!

My name is Kate Shephard and I'm a Dorset based Christian artist. I create and sell prints from my paintings as well as digitally created art. I currently sell a variety of different types of prints from floral quote prints, prints of my paintings to new baby keepsakes. When I paint I paint mainly using watercolours and acrylics and more recently I've started using coloured pencils to produce some joyous, vibrant art. Any talent I have is given by Gods grace.

I'm massively inspired by beautiful, rich vivid colour, my children, my faith, the ocean and nature of all shapes and sizes!

I live in Poole in Dorset - a stunning part of the UK that continually inspires me in so many ways.

Testimonials

I bought a personalised family portrait as a wedding gift for my best friend and her family (especially her little girl!) loved it! Kate was so easy to deal with and she answered any questions I had without any fuss and accommodated a few elements I wanted to include in the portrait. A great customer experience from start to finish with my order arriving quickly and to a really high standard. Thank you!

Could not have been happier with the order. Would order again from this store in a heart beat. So polite and friendly. So lovely with every change I wanted to make in achieving my perfect design. 
If I could give 6 stars I would.

Fantastic! The service i received was second to none from start to finish. Being my usual rushing self i did not think that i had left enough time for a lovely personal gift as this one but the fast service and delivery meant that it was possible. The product is beautiful, i purchased this as a Christening gift which was very well received. I have recommended to all of my friends!

Giraffe Watercolor Painting - I love rainbows so I love creating rainbow watercolor paintings - and I wanted to do something a little different :) I always try and start with a good sketch and then I went for a largely wet on wet effect for this loose watercolor.

This Tiger SpeedPaint Watercolor Speed Painting was really tricky - I struggled with the eyes and the stripes! I've been wanting to do a tiger painting for ages now but I've always been bit hesitant as was worried that all the detail would be so challenging. And I was right. ;) But I've given it a good go so I hope that you like him!

Check out my bumble bee painting! I'm trying some very loose watercolor animals painting with this bumblebee watercolor painting. I love bumblebee colours so I hope that came through in this little demo :) I'm also trying a new Langton paper which is a bit more textured than I would usually go for (link below). If you would like to see me paint a particular animal then pop a comment below :)
