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.
