Catherine is one of the foremost sporting artists in the UK. Her solid base of draughtsmanship has allowed her to develop her own, unique style. She has become recognised for her dynamic paintings of animals in movement, with bold use of colour and confident brushwork. She is able to combine traditional elements of realism with the use of more contemporary bold backgrounds and colours. “There is very simple joy in the observation of animals, in their uncomplicated appreciation of small things, or their unconscious beauty. I aim to explore this in my work, from commissioned portraits, to the large works depicting everything from tigers to racehorses”.
