And just letting you know my Instagram account kate_scott_paintings is now safely back with me – apologies again to anybody who received DM messages up until 23rd March – I am very grateful to say all is now well. I am having a slower paced week before moving on to last few weeks of planning for the Artists Open Houses in May.

I was so lucky to be invited to talk with Cathy Dixon, the lovely host of ‘The Rebchat’, a platform that has conversations with, and shares stories from a wide range of creatives.
We talked about how I came to be an artist, my process, early failures and the pivots that created in my life, early influencers, resilience, redundancy and wellbeing.
It was a lovely opportunity to see what came out with her thoughtful questions.
The shop window is a magical room set with an upcycled plastic bottle tree
I have four paintings here all made on reclaimed canvases from charity shops – this on ‘The Watermeadows’ is in the window – thrillingly!!
I have always used recycled and upcycled surfaces to paint some of my work on, so I am really happy to be able to show some of these canvases in December alongside some really fantastic artist and makers who are all working sustainably in their inspirational maverick ways materials and techniques.
I will also be running a mindful collage workshop at the Dynamite Gallery on Sunday 12th December 2.30 – 4.30 pm book through Eventbrite using the link below – I will be using all reclaimed materials except glue and a bit of paint !!
This painting is pat of a pair made for the window of Gallery 40 in Brighton – and looked rather lush and rain forest inviting as you approached from the top of the road.
The title refers to the refreshing relief that can come with rainfall after humid days or tears falling after emotion has been felt but not expressed – sometimes unexpected – potentially uncomfortable but ultimately cleansing – many layers – pretty optimistic in the end – available with me to be viewed at my studio – contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s sister painting ‘After I Swam’ will be exhibited at the ‘Out Of The Blue’ Exhibition Regency Town House 13 Brunswick Square, Hove, BN3 1EH where I am so proud to be showing with 20 other artists in this amazing historical building. It will be wonderful – preview 7-9pm Thursday 4th November
@kathandcompany Gallery in Twickenham London – one weekend only unfortunately but I managed to catch her – must be 30 years since we last met – and it was as if we’d seen each other the week before.
We were at the same 6th form college in Brighton, and then were amongst the very few art students who went to Hastings College of Art and Technology for our foundation course, both disappointed at first not to go to Brighton, it actually became the most positive and influential accident of fate for us both, a wonderful course, incredible teachers, including legendary Rod Harman, unique life long friendships made and inspirational learnings.
Freddie is now a professor at the Royal College of Art and makes totally thought provoking feminist mixed media pieces that need to be seen in the flesh to be appreciated – I am so honoured to have been able to be in contact again – the gallery is amazing and is hosting 12 artists over 12 weeks bookable online http://www.newartathome.co.uk
I am so looking forward to collaborating with Jo Delafons the sculptor on this two woman show in central Brighton,
