This ignited her passion to paint and an ‘art’ room was set up at home so that she could develop her portfolio of painting in acrylic and oils once again. Encouraged by having a painting accepted by a local gallery, and people starting to enquire about paintings to purchase; Cwtch My Art evolved. With this positive interest, Catherine’s dreams were once again ignited and a business plan was created for the launch of a business selling original art; which would work around her young family.
Whilst studying at University she developed her art using watercolour, inks and pastel, and printmaking selling locally, popular and favourite local scenes.
Catherine graduated from Portsmouth University in 1999 with a BA honours Art, Design & Media (Illustration). Catherine side-stepped from drawing and painting to work as a graphic designer, working in Wales and England.
Now in 2017, Cwtch my Art Limited has grown and Catherine’s original art is now being sold internationally, as well as in the UK. Catherine frequently exhibits in Wales and is always looking for new venues to collaborate with. Due to popular demand her artwork is now available on prints and products for the home and textile products. These products can be found in selected stores and galleries in Wales, on Etsy, Walter and May and Gift Wrapped and Gorgeous.
Cwtch my art Studio can be found in the rolling hills and terraced houses, in Caerphilly Borough. Appointments are required in advance; due to the Artist working at her own home in her Art Studio.
Catherine love of oils has helped her to explore and develop her artistic skills. With the love of nature, landscape and colours has inspired Catherine to spend quality time producing work to grow as an Artist.
