Cat's Bio

Me.jpg

Growing up the daughter of an artist, Cat only ever wanted to draw and paint.  'I was lucky to have my mum, Caroline Hulse, who was a wonderful landscape, abstract and figurative artist.  So our childhood was surrounded by paint on the carpet, brushes in the sink, drawing and sketches in between cushions and filling drawers, and art books in every corner'.

Cat worked alongside her Mum, sharing a studio for many years, working from both Mapledurham in South Oxfordshire and Marbella, Spain.

 

Cat originally specialised as a portrait painter, fascinated by faces and expression.  In 2014 she developed Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which is a facial palsy, paralysing the right side of her face.  Whilst much movement has returned, the experience challenged Cat's practice as a portraitist and she decided to concentrate her efforts on treescapes which had surrounded her since childhood.
