Catherine is delighted to have been voted Surrey Artist of the Year 2018!
“Catherine’s work, primarily acrylic and mixed media on canvas, are abstract in style but take inspiration from the landscape. Her fascination with light, colour and contrast bring a freedom and depth to her work. I look forward to returning to her work in the future and to following her development as an artist.” Alistair Burtenshaw, Director, Watts Gallery (2018 panel of judges).
Taking inspiration from landscapes and nature - from close to her home in Surrey, to the Cornwall and Devon coast (as well as further afield), she enjoys trying to capture something of the atmosphere and moment, in mainly abstract form, exploring colour and composition with bold gestural brushstrokes.
Catherine works mainly in acrylics, incorporating mixed media such as collage, chalk pastels and charcoal.
She has also further explored the theme of nature through a series of monoprints - with a focus on elements of colour, design and abstraction.
