Catherine was born in London and grew up in Oxford. She gained a degree in Fine Art Sculpture from Wimbledon School of Art. She then spent several years working and living in London before moving back to Oxfordshire in 1991. In 2014 Catherine moved to the Cotswold town of Charlbury where she lives with her four children.
Her stone carvings, paintings, and drawings have been widely exhibited and commissioned. They can be found in private collections and public spaces.
Catherine derives her inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, the human form, human relationships, the gentle landscape of Oxfordshire and time spent on the beautiful Hebridean island of Colonsay.
In her carving, human and landscape forms merge. Her painting captures the subtleties of changing seasons, colour and light. The importance of drawing is at the core of all her work.
Catherine has a love of natural materials - stone, pigment, charcoal and ink.
