Catherine’s style combines realism with abstract thought, to create vibrant and harmonious flowing paintings.
Her artistic gift was evident at an early age. With encouragement from family and friends, Catherine attended College in the late 80’s to receive Fine Arts diploma; later continuing to include graphic design. After graduation, she began a full time career in the print industry. Through 1990-2000 she also had Pet Prints where she painted portraits of various animal companions in pastel and pencil.
Later in her career, needing to experiment in more mediums and wanting more freedom of muse, she began experimentation in different mediums and pushing their boundaries of combination. Her plein air work is almost exclusively oil, while her studio work is continuously evolving with texture and line. She works in mainly traditional & water-based oils, acrylic and coloured inks.
Catherine is a member of the Orillia Fine Arts Association, Barrie Art Club, Ontario Plein Air Society, and Quest Gallery in Midland. Her work is part of private collections across Canada, the United States, The Netherlands and England. It can also be found in various local shows, galleries and events across Ontario.
