Cathy is a painter based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Cathy's recent canvases are a symphony of layered, coloured mark making, and plays of light. They are about a pulsating, vibrating abstract visual pleasure that is both rich and refined. She gives you the dense muted colours of Monet, the energy of de Kooning, the scribbly scraffitto of Basquiat and her own fanciful play of dots, dashes, swirls and decorative notations.
Her landscapes and still life paintings have been described as "gentle and with insight and a controlled sensitivity reminiscent of the beautiful quiet of Morandi".
