ABOUT KITTY

"Raised in a family with strong artistic roots, creativity was enshrined into my DNA. I was surrounded by creative individuals who encouraged and nurtured my enthusiasm for art from the moment I could hold a pencil. 

 I developed an early love for producing figurative sculpture but later transferred my passion and skills into painting and drawing portraits"

Kitty Bellamy has spent her life making works of art which have varied in subject and style as she evolved and honed her skills. She now concentrates her time on producing portraits in a relaxed but representational style, and particularly enjoys painting and drawing on a large scale; the use of light and shadow in her works, and latterly playing with adding gold leaf to create illumination in her creations.  She has worked on hundreds of commissions, but still adores working in her studio on pieces just for the love of painting - which she finds helps her to learn and constantly work on improving her knowledge and skills.  

Kitty Bellamy was born in 1982, Dover, England. With an arts heritage going back over six generations, she followed her innate creative flare and in 2001 undertook a Foundation Diploma in Fine Art at KIAD (Canterbury). After graduating, Kitty left the art world to pursue other interests, returning to the arts in 2007 after the birth of her first daughter.  

Kitty is based in the ancient market town of Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire, England. A beautiful part of the country with a stunning coastline and spectacular scenery.  She has two dogs, a cat and three children and lives in a very arty house.
