Pop Art

Kate Roebuck’s paintings of nature and everyday life are largely influenced by her study of textile design.

The artist: Originally from Pittsburgh, Penn., she studied textile design at the University of Georgia (graduated in 2009) and worked for Athens-based Hable Construction for five years before branching out on her own and starting Kate Roebuck Studio in 2014. Roebuck now lives and works in Chattanooga.

What’s popular: Black and white ink drawings and abstract water colors ($40 to $3,600).

Big breaks: Studying at UGA with textile designer and artist Clay McLaurin; working with Hable Construction founders and sisters Susan and Katharine Hable; and regular meetings with fine artist Carlyle Wolfe.

Claim to fame: Have partnered with retailers, such as One Kings Lane; Chairish, Ban.do; Crate & Barrel; Uprise Art; and Artfully Walls.

Where to buy: www.kateroebuckstudio.com. In Atlanta, at Miko + Boone Home, 41 Oak St., in Roswell (mikoandboonehome.com) and Crate & Barrel.
