About Catherine

From an early age Catherine had a strong interest in fashion design and garment assembly. She completed studies in these areas at Mount Gravatt TAFE. She developed her drawing skills at Brisbane Institute of Art. In 2015 she completed university study in Art Therapy to Masters level. In recent years her art practice has had a focus on printmaking, natural dyeing practices (using eucalyptus leaf print and indigo dyes)and upcycling or reconstructing garments. She is experienced in presenting workshops, facilitating programs in expressive arts and more recently workshops in printmaking, upcycling textiles, and natural dyeing practices. She has exhibited her art works in group exhibitions, in Boonah, Warwick, and Melbourne and has coordinated several art exhibitions.
