Catherine’s main inspiration comes from the sea and places of tidal change.

“Water, River, Sea and Boat form a constant source of inspiration. Places of tidal change where the forces of water etch into the landscape interest me; as I am drawn to coastal areas, rivers and the local Navvy bank in Dundalk.”
