Welcome to Kate Chesters Art
Welcome to my website! My name is Kate Chesters and I am an abstract artist living and working in Liverpool. My work fuses contemporary art with home decor. Travelling around the world inspires me: the swirling blues of Niagara falls and the frozen landscape of Reykjavik. I decorate chopping boards, placemats and bowls with resin. I also create abstract artworks and produce wall art prints, greeting cards and super cute mini canvas paintings!
All of my cheese boards, coasters, paintings and other pieces I create in my studio in Liverpool. I studied Art at Liverpool Hope University to Masters Level from 2010-2014 and I have worked as an independent artist ever since. After making hundreds of artisan boards and abstract artworks over the past year or so, the floor in my studio is absolutely COVERED in resin! I love what I do though, and it’s amazing to know that so many other people do too!
The resin artwork on my artisan boards and coasters is individually created by hand in my studio with a labour of love.
I mainly work with olive wood, which is a very beautiful and strong wood. The olive wood that I use is responsible sourced and ethically produced. Only wood from very old olive trees which have come to the end of their natural fruiting life and are replaced with younger trees is used for each artisan board.
Hard wearing and practical, each artisan board is perfect for cutting and preparing food, and stylish enough to leave out when not in use. Each board has it’s own unique grain pattern and natural edge, making it an attractive addition to any kitchen.
Just like the fingerprints on our hands, no two trees are identical. Therefore, the grain pattern, colour and shape of each artisan board will vary. Each board is completely unique and individual in beauty.
An artisan board makes a beautiful and functional gift for housewarmings, birthdays, Christmas and more. They are great keepsake gifts for romantic occasions, especially weddings, engagements, Valentines Day, and anniversaries.
Whether being used by the seasoned chef in your life, or an occasional cook, these eco-friendly olive wood boards are a handsome addition to any modern kitchen. The ideal gift for any foodie, these rustic cheese boards are made from olive wood and are crying out to be covered in your favourite cheeses, meats and antipasti!
