This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Throughout her life Kate Starling chose occupations that placed her in remote regions---as a geologist, river guide, forest firefighter and national park ranger. She started her professioal life as a park ranger for the National Park Service in Utah. Exposure to the outdoors inspired her to pursue a degree in painting at Southern Utah University, and she followed this with a graduate degree in painting at the University of Oregon.

In 2005, she participated in an exhibition, "Maynard Dixon Country 2005" at the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts.

Daren Brabham, Marketing Director, Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts.

Biography from Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts:
Kate Starling is an oil painter who lives and works in the canyons of southern Utah. Educated in geology, she spent years working outside as a geologist and National Park ranger.  After formal academic art training in the 1980's she devoted her work to painting the landscape.  Schooled in the importance of direct painting from life she has spent years painting outside, learning the way light plays on the land.   Now she splits her time between the roadways and trails surrounding her home and the studio.

Starling's paintings portray the natural world and focus on communicating a sense of place, atmosphere and light, retaining the immediacy of the painting experience. She knows the strength of emotion that the landscape seen in a particular light can trigger in her - she strives to paint in such a way that memory and emotion are triggered in the people who see her work.
