about

Catherine is a multi-form artist whose work responds to place. Since graduating from the National Art School in Sydney, NSW, Catherine has been the recipient of three major art awards, Emerging Artist on the Rocks, Sydney (2006), The Waverly Art Prize (2007) and a residency at the Onslow Storrier Studio at the Cite Des Arts International Paris (2008) through the National Art School. Her work is held in private and public collections around Australia. In 2011 she was successful in securing a Regional Arts Fund (RAF) grant to do the major Public Art Project The Sea Hammock – What Lies Beneath and has subsequently been the feature artist on two RAF funded Projects including The Wisdom of the Elders Project (2012 – Video) and The Portland Botanical Gardens Art and Community Engagement Project (2013 – Painting/Photography/Installation). In 2014 Catherine initiated and facilitated the establishment of The Space, a short term, self funded residency for writers and artists and the Virtual Arboretum Portland, a four artist, interactive, installation project with public art outcomes. She was also Artist in Residence at the Narrawong District Primary School, as part of the Creative Art’s Artists in Schools Program using street art techniques to build a community mural called The Sea Creatures Street Art Project. Shedding a light on Orford was her most recent project made for the Moyne Shire’s Pitch Project. This year Catherine’s work has been exhibited at the Wyndham and Chippendale New World Art Prize. She is now part of the team for the Kang-o-Meerteek Small Town Transformation Project for Narrawong in Victoria.
