Catherine Rayner

Catherine RaynerCatherine employs the use of subtle colour and tone whilst playing with scale, composition and open space to create paintings and silk-screen prints of animals.
Her creatures are brought to life using spontaneous and vivacious line that explores movement and personality. With effortless flow Catherine’s artwork conveys the natural habitat and beauty of creatures many of us take for granted. Facial expressions illustrate curiosity whilst the animals’ postures suggest that they have simply strayed into the frame and might just as easily leave it again.

A gallery filled with Catherine’s silk-screen prints acts like an open-ended storybook. Each image is a new page and in each we encounter a new and different character, the events of whose life we are invited to consider. Not surprisingly it is Catherine’s experience as a children’s book illustrator that has heightened not only her awareness but also her fascination with the design aspect of each artwork.
