Kate Pane, Painter

Kate Pane, painter, Williamsburg, Brooklyn NY.  Kate was always going to paint.  But when she came to New York, it wasn’t so easy to make a success of it.  She worked nights in a restaurant to make ends meet – leaving the days for painting in her tiny studio.  She tells Michael Pollock how taking advantage of a chance encounter – combined with a rigorous work habit – led to her first show at a top flight Chelsea gallery.
