Cathy Parker

My paintings spring from my lifelong enjoyment of the natural world. My main subject is the landscape, especially trees. I work in various media, including oils, acrylics, watercolours, ink and mixed media. I have two ways of working: outdoors in front of the subject, in direct response to the enduring forms of the landscape and the fleeting changes of light, colour and weather; and in the studio, producing semi-abstracted work.
