Catherine Smith

Catherine has a degree in Graphic Design and started exhibiting in 2015 with Echo Arts. Since then she has been selected for exhibitions in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire and won the Cambridge News Award for an Outstanding Contemporary Watercolour at the SEAW exhibition in 2017.

“My recent paintings and drawings reflect my interest in linear journeys in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire; they include both observational studies and more abstract responses. They are traces of where I have been.

Work made at the Guildhall has produced a series of watercolours reacting to the fabric of the building. The paintings create their own timeline of craftsmanship, decay and restoration.”
