The COAST ROAD DIARIES at Duff House until August 1st 2010

The Coast Road Diaries is now installed in Duff House and is open for visitors until August 1st, after which the work returns to my Edinburgh studio. This version of the show has rather fewer paintings than its previous showings in Edinburgh and Dumfries but does includes previously unseen ‘cabinet works’, ie small drawings/travel pieces etc.


‘ ….. an extraordinarily powerful show, fresh and vital’

‘Kate is a wonderful artist. A fine draughtsman (woman…) who is totally and utterly immersed in the power of the surroundings in which she finds herself’

‘Her show records a journey around Scotland and some of the individual images are stunning  …….. she has reached a kind of luminous calm.’
