Welcome to the new katedownie.com website.

Two years of meetings, ideas, writing and researching to reach this stage; I am, at last, delighted to welcome you to join this world of paint, ink, paper and canvas made virtual. I hope you enjoy it.
Feedback most welcome.

Kind Request

Over the past 29 years of my working life my art has been exhibited and sold to individuals and collections the world over. Whilst researching the provenance of the pictures in this site, I realised there were huge gaps in the records of ownership. If anyone out there owns my work, it would be incredibly useful if those of you who do own works could email me with information about which actual work(s) they own: title, medium, size, from which exhibition/venue, edition number, if any. Emailing me an image of the work ‘in situ’ would be very useful. All this would be added to my updated information base. It would also enable me to update my mailing list and enable you to be informed of and to receive invitations to future art events.
Thank you !
