Hello, my name is Catherine, and I’m a Fine Art Illustrator based in East Anglia, UK

I have a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from the University for the Creative Arts, and am currently studying a Masters in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. I’m very much enjoying learning to explore story telling through writing and illustration.

I’m very interested in memory, and in past work I have used mediums of Graphite pencil, ink and dry point etching. Themes of Heritage, Journeys and Generational Family links comes through this exploration of memory. Drawing is central to my practice, I love observational drawing and returning to places that hold strong memories to draw. This is often the starting point to my work, and then I take photos and work in layers with different mediums back in my studio. 

I have exhibited across the UK, including  Turn the Page Artist Book Fair in Norwich. I have been shortlisted for the Holt Festival Art Prize, and have work in the permanent collection East Contempory Art at the Waterfront Gallery in Ipswich. 

When I’m not in the studio, I enjoy cooking while listening to audio-books, and going for forest walks with my partner.
