We are delighted to present this long awaited first solo exhibition at Doubtfire by Kate Henderson, the Scottish painter and glass maker. Known for her vibrant colourful paintings and stained glass, Kate is showing a quieter more reflective series of work in this exhibition. She says, “My work has developed from my experience during the pandemic, being at home with my family. It gave me time to develop and reflect on my drawing and mixed media work, which I based on the trees around my home and watching them move into the different seasons. My glass work is augmented by some bright, colour Edinburgh drawings based on the architecture of the city.”

Kate Henderson

Kate trained in stained glass at Edinburgh College of Art in the early nineties and has since built up a varied portfolio of commissioned works for public and private buildings across Scotland and Europe. She has won awards for her paintings from the RGI and the RSW and is an elected Associate member of the British Master Glass Painters, Professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists and a Trustee of the Royal Glasgow Institute.

Kate’s art incorporates traditional and contemporary techniques in glass; from painted, layered, acid etched to waterjet cutting. Interested in creating pieces that explore the fragility of glass, she works into the surface as well as the edges to expose the vulnerability of the material. ”

“Over the years I have developed a painterly approach to both my painting and glass work. I feel that the relationship between my glass and painting continues to strengthen and develop, influencing the mark making in each discipline.”
