Art by Catherine Phillips
Thank you for visiting my website.
I am an abstract painter and video artist, and I knew from a very early age that "my calling" is to be an artist. This didn't stop me from going off on several wild goose chases! I bring all of my life experiences, the good, the bad, the challenging and the unresolved, to my work, and long-term hope to develop strands of work that encourage people who don't consider themselves as arty to get involved.
I am fascinated by the moon, by nature and the world around us; I create a lot of my paintings in a spontaneous, unplanned way; this is often in response to music that I am listening to, dreams or just as an experiment. I love bold colours and strongly believe in the healing power of art.
Original paintings or prints can make a unique gift, brighten up a room or an office, or act as a reminder of a special place or moment. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you have any questions or would like to commission a painting, I would love to hear from you!
I have a number of exhibitions coming up (both solo and group), if you would like to stay up to date regarding these events, or to receive news of current works-in-progress, please don't forget to sign up to my monthly newsletter!
Alongside art, I practise tae kwon do, and I've written more about this here - please have a read of my blog if you have a few spare minutes!
