Catherine Taylor Parry 

I work in rural Wales, surrounded by my atmospheric canvases. My work is a personal response to landscapes. A fleeting moment captured from a passing glimpse of the ice covered mountain, the flash of an orange soaked sky or the silence and stillness of shining sand and mist covered water. I use colour and texture to create images full of atmosphere and memory.

I use acrylics which I have used for many years, as I love its qualities of manipulation, flexibility and colour.  Despite having MS since 1996, I am breaking through my boundaries with bursts of colour and light.

My work is inspired by the mountains, fields and coast. I am interested in creating paintings that evoke a mood. I paint ethereal objects and scenes which can be open to the viewers’ interpretation. I paint suggestions of people viewing the scene, or remnants of a memory from the past.

I have been exhibiting throughout the UK since leaving university with a degree in Fine Art.
