Kandy Tate approaches each canvas portraying the drama
of color and sunlight with bold brushstrokes. Kandy's philosophy is to "paint with passion and be in love with what you see and paint." She hopes she stirs the viewer's imagination and speaks to others.
Kandy designs her paintings according to her vision. The emotive power of landscape scenery offers a boundless source of inspiration and expressive force in her works. She focuses entirely on depicting the fleeting effects of light and color on all surfaces she encounters.
Tate received her Bachelor of Fine Art at Wichita State University
her master's at Kansas University, and has had extensive training in Europe. She has also taught art at the University of New Mexico.
Her work is in many prominent collections, including the White House, and the collection of George and Barbara Bush.
"Paint with Passion and be in Love,
with what you See and Paint"
