Artist information: Catherine J. Pier B.Sc. FRSA
Catherine is a well known artist. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, an Honorary member of Faringdon Artists, a member of Marlborough Artists, Highworth Artists, the Guild of Wiltshire Artists and has been Chairperson of Purton Artists for many years. She has been painting professionally for 28 years during which time she has supplied galleries and held very successful one-man exhibitions
Catherine is self-taught and paints in pastel, acrylic, watercolour and oil, although pastel on sandpaper is her preferred medium (information on pastels). The Cotswolds and the Wiltshire countryside with their rolling hills, gentle valleys, stone villages and dreamy rivers, inspire her. She has a natural talent for conveying her love of nature in wonderful pastel paintings, which leaves the viewer with those feelings they wish they could hold forever when in an idyllic setting.
