Catherine is a contemporary artist from Wooragee in regional Victoria.
Her unique approach to artmaking is expressive and engaging, capturing rural Australian subjects.
“Having mostly lived in small regional communities it’s only natural to be captivated by the bush and it’s many wonders. Something different is offered every day. It’s a matter of opening yourself to new ideas and experiences, enjoying the seasons and letting my paintings evolve”.
An expressive use of colour, line and texture with an emphasis on mark making is Catherine’s trademark. Her contemporary arts practice primarily involves drawing, painting and mixed media using oils, oil stick and oil pastel.
North east Victoria and the NSW Riverina landscapes provide ongoing fodder in her recent body of work, preferring to focus on natural waterways, creeks and billabongs. Native flora and bird studies are ongoing themes in her everyday practice also.
Since completing a Bachelor of Arts degree (Visual Arts) in 1995 at Charles Sturt University Wagga Wagga, she is currently enjoying fulfilling a long held dream of becoming a full time professional artist. Catherine exhibits regularly both regionally and interstate. Her work is becoming very well sought after, winning the prestigious $20,000 MAMA Art prize in 2016 and a sell out solo exhibition at Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) in 2017.
