More about Catherine J Stephenson:
The majority of Catherine’s work is inspired by floral subjects, focusing on specific types of flowers painted with natural flair and an eye for the use of both colour and detail. Catherine is also inspired by the context in which she finds her subjects such as seasonality, and light. As a result, the impact of her work is hugely varied from the ethereal Floral Dream to the powerful almost abstract strokes of Summer Iris. It is this ability to include fantastic detail with colour and texture allows Catherine to produce work in different sizes and formats. Oversize unframed canvases convey the sense of being in the painting, where small delicate pieces such as the Floral Spring series nestle in small frames. There are also examples of mixed media, with beautifully printed mounts and embellished glass giving added depth to some of Catherine’s pieces. Her palette is varied and there is as much depth on her monochrome work as in her full colour compositions.
