Born in the USA and currently based in Edinburgh, Kate Downie has strong Aberdeenshire roots, having spent her earlier years in the North East of Scotland, attending Ellon Academy and Gray’s School of Art. Kate has returned to the North East bringing a wonderful collection of recent works inspired by her travels to China . Her participation in many international artist residencies has allowed her to respond to environments as diverse as, hospitals, breweries, oil rig platforms and bridge structures.
