Blue Mountains City Council Commission

Kate Soady is an exceptional artist with a passion for painting beautiful Banksias and Lyrebirds in the Blue Mountains bush setting. Her use of rich, vibrant and warm colours to celebrate native flora and fauna is exquisite and surprising. She brings the bush to life in intimate detail, with interesting perspective and scale.

I was fortunate to be able to commission a wonderful painting by Kate that now takes pride of place in my office. It provides me with inspiration and joy every work day, reminding me that our native bushland flora and fauna is indeed precious and we are all stewards of it for future generations.

All house guests comment when they walk into this room. No other wall adornments are necessary as it captivates the space perfectly. The Bower Bird in the Dining area is a constant source of appreciation and one recent house guest loved it so much she wanted to purchase it from me. My answer was to give her your contact to have one painted in a similar fashion. The colours of this painting catch the eye of everyone who comes in the back entrance. You can play with the words here but as you can tell I am a very happy customer."

The detail is extraordinary and the colours complement my home perfectly , it’s exactly what I asked for.

I love the detail of the banksias ,gumnuts and especially the wattle bird. It brings my love of the bush and the blue mountains into my home Kate! My husband and I love it so much "

Just wanted to say thankyou for delivering your wonderful painting to me yesterday. We are SO happy with our choice and really feel it was meant to be! After a year and a half of looking for the right piece I found it.
Just a couple of photos, looks stunning.
