Catherine Morris

Catherine is a professional artist whose art has been greatly influenced by her studies in textiles. Consequently she has always been strongly drawn to texture as well as colour in her work.

More recently she moved on to the medium of paint and she now enjoys translating that love of texture into her paintings, layer by layer. She uses a wide range of materials to build up the surface as well as adding numerous layers of colour. She enjoys the process of suggesting half hidden images by continuously covering and revealing, leaving some areas suggested rather than firmly defined. “Whatever subject I am painting I enjoy creating that tension between representation and abstraction” says Catherine,“I like my paintings to be a balance between the definite, the indefinite, opacity and transparency and above all a balance of colours. Colour is my religion and the reason why I paint”.
