Kate Westbrook was born in England and grew up in the U.S.A. and Canada before going to Dartington Hall School in Devon. From there she went to Bath Academy of Art at Corsham and then to Reading University. Later she lived and worked on the East and West coasts of America. The first one-man show of her paintings (Kate Barnard 'Captive') was held at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in California, in 1965. She returned to England and took up a part-time teaching post at Leeds College of Art.
In 1970 she had her first London Show, with two other artists, at the Serpentine Gallery. She has continued to exhibit her work in solo and group shows in the UK, in Europe and Australia.
In 2011 she had a solo show at University of Plymouth’s Cube Gallery. Since then she has been concentrating on making a new body of work on the subject ‘Diana and Actaeon’. Her work is in public and private collections.
In 1974 she joined the Mike Westbrook Band and gave up teaching to concentrate on the dual career of painter and musician. She has performed all over Europe and as far afield as the far East and North America. As a singer/songwriter she is featured on over 30 albums, and she has worked in theatre, radio, and TV. Her most recent album, The Serpent Hit, was launched recently at Wilton’s Music Hall, London.
