Catherine was born in Bristol but spent her childhood in Greater London. Moving to Wales to attend Polytechnic and then staying on for a few more years before heading back to London to live on a narrowboat. She has experimented with various jobs before packing a tent and heading round the world for 1 1/2 years. Back from her travels, in the UK, Catherine coaxed her Morris Traveller to Devon in search of a different lifestyle. Two children and many years on, Catherine now works as an professional inspired artist, still living on a farm in Devon and gaining as much enjoyment from the 'voice' of art as she has ever done.
