Artist Bio:

Catherine Morrisey was born in a family of artists in Toronto. She studied Fine Art at York University, Painting at Art’s Sake Inc. and worked in several galleries. She enjoyed living a year alone in the wild on the west coast without electricity, running water, or communication technology. Then she studied Library and Information Science at Western. She integrated art in public and university libraries. She curated exhibitions in the museum, and taught archives at Fanshawe College. She participates in the annual London Artists Studio Tour and exhibits at Westland Gallery.

Artist Statement:

Catherine’s inspiration for painting is the beautiful river and woods behind the studio. She paints in the spirit of Bonnard, Soutine, and the Chinese landscape tradition. Her studio faces west towards the river and woods. In the distance she can see the #6 Richmond Bus crossing over the bridge.
