Art has been her passion for as long as she can remember and although mainly self-taught, she specialised in Art while undertaking an Education degree in Glasgow. While continuing to paint, she taught in schools for several years before becoming a fulltime artist in 2009. She feels that the true freedom of expression experienced as a self-taught artist has allowed her to develop her own unique style which is a clear personal reflection of how she perceives the beauty of the world around her and her place in it.
?Catriona's work is influenced primarily by her love of nature. The intense colours, perpetually changing light, perfect forms and dramatic land and seascapes of the natural world of her homeland are a constant source of fascination and inspiration. She uses a variety of media depending on the mood or atmosphere she wishes to convey. She often chooses to work in acrylic to fully capture the vivid hues of a dramatic East Coast sunrise or Hebridean sunset.
