Brooklyn, New York, USA

Kate Crosgrove enjoys, but is not limited to, painting oversized oil portraits of animals. She likes to call them “Elevated Pet Portraits”.

She considers her style a loose photorealism, working from photographs and letting her own understanding of the animal’s personality show whenever possible.

 

Kate chooses to work with oil on linen because, unlike many of the other contemporary mediums, oil has proven to stand the test of time. She creates her portraits with the intention of extending the memory of the subject through generations.

    • Hey Anne, I’m so glad you stopped by my blog. I have commissioned pet portraits before. They’re very nice keepsakes to have. (I even have one of my Bearded Dragon.) Yes, Kate’s work is awesome. Off to visit your post, “21 Cat Hug GIFs.” Sounds fun! 🙂
