Kate Doss' work focuses on objects and spaces that have elements of nostalgia and universal associations for the viewer. She finds inspiration from colors, textures, and forms in everyday experiences. Through her application of paint, she aims to involve the viewers' senses—to alllow one to remember an experience as well as the sounds, textures, and tastes of the moment.

Kate views looking at her artwork similar to a meditative experience. She encourages the viewer to take a close look- to feel refreshed. She views her role of an artist as fluid—a search for freedom, a need to create.
