She gained her First Class BA (Hons) in Fine Art as a mature student, fulfilling a lifelong ambition for creative occupation.

Catherine’s most recent body of paintings concentrate largely, though not exclusively, on ‘Family Matters’ contemplating topical issues of family significance using old photographs and cine films as inspiration.
Catherine’s stitched collaged works are mainly figurative depictions of animals, birds and flora using recycled paper to create the quintessential characteristics of the subject.
