A Dutch-born artist is cel­e­brat­ing the work­places of North­East Scot­land with a solo ex­hi­bi­tion at The Mef­fan Mu­seum and Art Gallery in For­far.

Darg and Drams is the cul­mi­na­tion of Kate Steen­hauer’s artis­tic ex­plo­rations at the ship­yards and he­li­ports of Aberdeen har­bour.

She also re­flects the art of the Spey­side Cooper­age where whisky casks are made.

“Hav­ing lived in Scot­land for more than a decade I see its beauty in the nat­u­ral grit of ev­ery­day life,” says Kate.

Orig­i­nally from the Nether­lands, her ca­reer path has gone from semipro­fes­sional ten­nis in her youth to civil engi­neer­ing at Delft Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy and from a PhD in coastal engi­neer­ing from Aberdeen Univer­sity to fine art.

She pro­duces con­tem­po­rary images of Scot­tish her­itage us­ing oil paint and in­taglio print­mak­ing tech­niques.
