About Catherine Gordon

Catherine Gordon is best known for her atmospheric landscape paintings of the Great Southern region of Western Australia. She studied Fine Art at Curtin University and is a painter, teacher and book illustrator. Now living in Bayswater, Catherine paints the native forests she sees on her walking paths in and around Perth. In colour and texture, she captures the straggling fallen limbs and burnt peeling bark to evoke the life cycle of indigenous forests. She paints an abundant variety of shrubs and sun-dappled trees which advance and recede as they catch the light in diverse ways.
