Catriona gathers her inspiration from a variety of sources – people, memories, as well as emotions and small, every day insignificant details. She is constantly on an artistic journey to explore and develop. She gravitates towards a more free and dynamic style but wants the viewer to gain a sense of her passion, energy and spirit.
Catriona has spent many years abroad; having recently returned from living in South Africa. Catriona has been greatly influenced by her time in South Africa where she was encouraged to return to her love of drawing and painting. Catriona is mainly a self-taught artist although she has regularly completed short courses, live figure drawing sessions and other professional development activities.
She has most recently enjoyed working with oils to paint large scale seascapes; however she also likes drawing and mixing media to create more abstract images.
