Hi, welcome to my website, Cathy's creations.
As a child I absolutely loved creating art and although I was successful at gaining a place at Art college, I felt pressurised into getting a conventional job and have spent over three decades too busy to pick up a paint brush or pencil.
When stress at work started to effect my health, I picked up pencils again to help me to relax. With a lot of encouragement from friends and family I have taken the leap of faith to leave my job and to pursue my childhood dream of being an artist.
I have always admired all of creation and love to spend time outside with my pet dogs and like to wonder at all the beauty that surrounds us. Initially I captured such beauty with my camera but now like to recreate the beauty using coloured pencils.
I love trying to recreate an array of colour and detail so use high quality artists pencils and pastels and use a technique of building up many layers. It gives me great satisfaction when I manage to capture that glint in an animals eye.
Please take a look at my shop where you can purchase original drawings or prints. If you would like me to commission a portrait please don't hesitate to contact me and I'll reserve a place in my diary.
