Locally born and raised right here in the town of Manasquan, Kate Mancini’s art has been deeply inspired by the ocean and beach town lifestyle.
While teaching art in a private school for 5 years , applying the core concepts of the Reggio Emilia approach, Kate decided to take a hiatus from working to raise her five children. Kate and her husband Joe live in Colts Neck where they love the wide open spaces and enjoy the garden and outdoors as much as possible.
Kate has been deeply influenced by her parents, both artists, and her uncle Geoffrey Myers who is a well renowned painter and sculptor with many pieces in galleries around east coast. Kate’s work is best described as evoking a feeling of happiness and tranquility through use of color, layers and composition with a fresh abstract feel. Kate loves to paint layered landscapes both underwater and above in a “primitively modern” style.
