BACKGROUND OF THE ARTIST:


Catherine Durden has been interested in art from a young age. She took this interest further in a BA Illustration course at the University of Central Lancashire. She worked with a very wide variety of media, ranging from silk screen printing to sculpture and pastel drawings.

Catherine now works mainly with acrylics and gouache on paper or canvas. She has been commissioned to do a number of pet and family portraits and is also diversifying into unique and creative cards (see the Christmas card range, which will be uploaded in the future).


"I like to merge fantasy with life. I am interested in depicting hidden meanings and symbolism in my imaginative pictures. As a result the artwork is interpreted differently by each person.

My work varies from macabre illusions to affectionate and lifelike animal portraits."
