I am a painter.  I am a writer.

As a painter, I understand the value of clear and concise written articulation within the commercial gallery environment.  

Speaking well and honestly about ourselves and our work has a profound effect on our success, survival and well-being amidst the context of a competitive, global market.

Throughout my career I have been creating my own professional texts and helping artist friends and cohorts put words to their projects.  I am a painter.  I also like to write.

Many writing projects are private, either to my clients or to myself.  I am an experienced researcher, academic (white paper) writer and editor, grant writer, political endorsement writer, book reviewer and essayist.  

Below are a variety of samples relative to fine art, from my original blog Kate Beck :: Art Notes (included on Brett Baker's Painters Table New York art blog ), and (coming soon) snippets from professional letters, grant writing and other client projects:
