A devoted watercolorist, Kate Aubrey’s paintings include all genres from landscape to figure, her personal favorites being figure and florals. Best known for her series of old Nevada steam locomotive paintings featuring volunteers at the Nevada State Railroad Museum, Aubrey continues to be fascinated by the combination of machinery and men. She had also created a series depicting landscapes in Nevada, California, Colorado and England – her favorite places to paint.
“Art is heart-to-heart communication. It’s about feelings and being human and our place in Creation. Art is revered from century to century, across borders and continents; it’s the universal language. If I capture the image and miss the feeling, it’s just drafting. The painting has to speak.”
Currently, 21 of her paintings are displayed in patient rooms in the Tahoe Tower at Renown Regional Medical Center.
