Catherine Porter

Art has been an integral part of my life, since a very young age.

Mt Stromlo Observatory and the Research School of Biological Sciences, ANU Canberra gave me the opportunity to hone my skills using pen and ink, illustrating both fauna and flora dissections for publication in science journals.

I began painting, firstly in oils, then in watercolour and mixed media. Most of my art now centres around watercolour and some pen and ink work. I find painting with watercolour both exhilarating and frustrating, as you can never be quite sure where it will lead you.

Over the years I have been most fortunate to have had the opportunity to participate in workshops with John Lovett and David Fam, but primarily I am a self-taught artist.

I have been part of art exhibitions and sold work both privately and through galleries over the years.

I paint using a variety of subjects, predominately the bush, floral and bird life.
