Challenging, grotesque and raw... as with fellow Scot Joan Eardley, it is difficult to pin her to any school or movement, though her ‘primitive’ style and struggles with mental health link her work with Dubuffet’s Art Brut and Outsider Art.

On The Edge was also featured in ORGAN: Five Recommended Art Things by Sean Worrall:

Douthwaite’s work at its best emanates the essence of raw femininity with all that implies of vulnerability, unacceptable drives and emotional demands. On Douthwaite’s stage the female appears in many guises, as victim and predator, and she understands better than most that an impressive outsize persona can hide a shrinking core of anxious, insecure humanity...Her emotional honesty and unflinching eye often present an uncomfortable experience for the viewer as she exposes her subjects, like specimens in a jar, latterly often eschewing any setting or background.
