Using flower, leaf and bird images, Cathy creates tangled nature paintings. The gesture of the brush stroke is very important in creating shape and rhythm in these pieces. The positive and negative shapes and spaces interweave, as perhaps they do in nature. She aims for pleasing and fresh imagery, using watercolor and opaque gouache paint on watercolor paper.
