Along with her art practice Catherine also teaches at Leith School of Art and is a professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists.
Catherine finds the inherent beauty of words fascinating, especially as we are saturated with text and communication in every aspect of our lives. The artist aims to take this and create works that will simultaneously calm and question the viewer. She often works in series on various scales and surfaces.
The Spectrum series takes quotes from various famous artists about colour and have been created using a hand blending screen print technique, this process only allows small editions, in this an edition of 7 were produced.
