Catherine works in watercolor painting, but she also works in printmaking, collage, and fiber art.

Watercolor is a perfect medium for depicting the ever-changing natural world. Trees, clouds, water, and rocks capture and reflect light and color in a way that can be observed only momentarily, as the light passes and changes. In the last year I have focused on the beauty surrounding us in North Carolina, both the dramatic and the everyday. I have deliberately refrained from including man-made objects or even animals in my paintings, focusing only on the interplay of plants, earth, water, air and light. A watercolor impression of a moment in time provides a sense of the transient and fragile nature of our world.
