Catherine loves to get lost within the details. The use of bright colours, texture and pattern reflect the emotional and meditative qualities of her work.
Another endless source of inspiration for Catherine is the raw beauty of nature. By painting the recurring patterns, lines, colours and shapes she sees in vegetation, water, earth and sky, Catherine finds she can slow down, relax and reconnect with nature. She often looks for beauty in unexpected places and finds herself getting immersed in the details.
Catherine hopes that although her unconscious mind tries to tame nature and make order out of the chaos, she hopes the viewer can still experience an emotional connection to the finished piece of work
Catherine is a Brisbane based artist and Illustrator. Although born in Queensland, she spent several years in London where she completed a BA (Hons) Illustration degree at Westminster University. Since returning to Australia with a young family, Catherine now finds that acrylic paint is the quickest and most colourful way to express herself.
Growing up beside the beach, the marine world with its bright corals, shells, plants and fish was an endless source of inspiration. While working and studying Illustration in London, Catherine became interested in the art and mythology of the ancient world, particularly in their use of pattern, repeating motifs and mythological symbols.
