Catherine McConnell


I am a figurative and portraiture artist, originally from Berkshire but having moved to Northumberland just over a year ago with my partner and 3 year old son (baby number 2 on the way in March!). I have a degree in Drawing and Applied Arts from the University of the West of England but so far art has remained mostly a hobby for me. What draws me to portraiture in particular can be summed up in this quote from the Classical Painting Atelier by Juliette Aristides: "Great portraiture rebels against our society's tendency to stereotype, categorize and objectify those around us. By celebrating a single personality, portraiture provides a humanizing influence in an age of detachment."
