Catherine was born and brought up in Perth, Scotland, where she had a love for drawing from the as early as she can remember. This passion continued to flourish throughout childhood and adolescence and led to her studying fine art at Edinburgh College of Art from 2005-2009.
After graduating from art college, although Catherine did not stop drawing and painting part time, she worked as many things including a nursing assistant. After a year she returned to study and completed a post graduate diploma in occupational therapy, hoping to use her artistic skills to work professionally with people who have mental health difficulties.
Catherine has been working part time as an artist and full time for mental health services around Scotland for the past 7 years. Having recently returned to Perth and started a family, Catherine has found this to be a catalyst to returning to pursuing painting and all things artistic as her main occupation.
Her goal over the coming years is to utilise her experience and training in working with groups to run classes and workshops. Otherwise Catherine continues to work from her small home studio completing commissions and paintings for future exhibitions. Catherine is available to complete murals and larger scale artwork which she does on a regular basis at Guardswell farm in Perthshire.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Catherine if you are interested in collaborating or commissioning.
