Catherine is a Sydney based artist who studied at the National Art School in Sydney and
later extended her studies at UTS and at the Julian Ashton Art School. She is a Fellow
of the Royal Art Society of N.S.W. and council member. She is also a member of Oatley
101 Society of Artists.

Catherine has been exhibiting professionally for 30 years in commercial galleries and
art exhibitions. She has won numerous awards and her works have been used in art
publications and by government organisations.

Her paintings are drawn from the visual experience of life on a sensory and emotional level.
Catherine describes her own artistic style as oscillating between figurative and abstraction
and her work subscribes to this notion. In the moment when colour, shapes and marks begin
to interact, the painting takes on a life of its own reflecting the artist's observations,
experiences and imagination.

More of Catherine's works can be viewed on her website

Two Places Left in Catherine's Workshop

August 25th -John Perkins will teach landscape painting in oils
w  w  w  w  w

At the young age of fourteen, John Perkins joined Henry Rousal as an apprentice
sign-writer. This is where he met a well-known portrait artist Roy Rousel and a pub
mirror artist Stan Denford, both of whom cultivated John's early interest in and love
for art.

John was tutored by Graeme Inson using the Meldrum Principals of Tonal
Impressionism and has himself been a tutor for over 35 years at institutions
such as Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, Grafton Artsfest, the University of
Western Sydney (Richmond Campus) and at the Combined Art Society of Sydney's
'Art in Action'.

John is widely recognised as a traditional oil artist specialising in still life and
landscape paintings, he has, however, over the years pursued various other subjects –
this has led to him being renowned for his marine and streetscape paintings. His work
represented both nationally and internationally with work currently displayed in the
City of Sydney Library and many Municipal Council and private collections in England,
New Zealand and America (Boston and California).

As a Fellow and President of the Royal Art Society of NSW, John is sought after by
Art Scieties and private organisers as an Art Judge and demonstrator.  He has over
70 first prizes and a multitude of awards and continues to gain recognition from his peers.

John is a Life Member and former President of Drummoyne Art Society, Honorary Member
of Lane Cove Art Society and was the Inaugural President of the Combined Art Societies
of Sydney.
