Capturing the detailed character of trees on canvas has Catherine to create her very own piece of nature in this exhibition. Catherine is drawn to the old gnarly trees that have weathered the storms and are twisted and bent but have still hung on and survived. Going from a realism style to abstract allows Catherine to look also at the bigger extended picture of the forest.

Living locally on the Hibiscus Coast for the last 30 years I am living in my kind of paradise. Beaches and natural bush are in abundance so inspiration is all around me. I have been painting for the last 25 years but have come from a creative background so have always loved to experiment with colour and texture. I favour acrylics but will add different mediums to get the effects I want.

I have been told my paintings are uplifting so I take that as a compliment. I love bright colour but will also play with subdued hues from time to time. Teaching others to enjoy painting and extend their skills gives me great pleasure. Investigating new techniques enables me to extend beyond my comfort zone and also inspire my students.
