About the Artist
I am a professional Artist specialising in printmaking and painting. Working "Plein Air" is key to the painting and print I finish in my purpose built studio. I draw and paint wherever I go, coastlines and people are my inspiration. Weather permitting the Gazebo and my painting shelter will be in the garden both weekends with drawing things for both children and grown ups so you can have a go.
Catherine is currently President of Glasgow Society of Women Artist, Director and committee member of Fife Dunfermline Print Workshop and Lecturer at Forth ValleyCollege. She has exhibited with numerous societies including SSA, PAI, RGI and VAS. Her most recent foreign exhibition was with Fife Printmakers in Mino City Japan.
She most commonly uses seascape or landscape as her major inspiration but allows herself to draw whatever takes her fancy as she travels or in her day to day life. She is currently working on a series of portraits to celebrate all of the wonderful women around her. These will be the subject of some exhibitions to come, a publication and is a personal challenge as portrait has never before been her focus. There will be a preview of some of these works at open studio alongside work in progress and other never seen in public works.
Plein Air painting is always a focus and all work has started with a sketch, drawing or painting with either the air around her or the sitter posing for her. There will be a number of sketchbooks available to see when you visit. You can book printmaking or painting workshops in advance when you visit or contact through her website.
