Feeling very grateful

I am still resting and processing the amazing madness of May – the month that is the most intense for artists in Brighton and Hove Uk.

Christian Funnel’s sculptures at our POP UP at 1 Rigden Road – so proud I made this happen!

It sometimes feels like a crazy helter-skelter of deadlines, followed by quietness but mostly I am so proud and happy from all the plans that came to fruition, the connections made and the new friends collectors supporters who flowed towards me, and the amazing artists I exhibited with – and the capacity for open minded appreciation of the Humans who made the effort to visit us in three different venues.

And the people who have come since to the studio to see the work; something I really enjoy – contact me info@katescottpaintings.com to arrange a visit

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.

Meeting up with Freddie Robins @iamfreddierobins

@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
