Catherine Howard has been a textile artist and designer for over 30 years. She has had a passion for making things from an early age when her mother taught her how to use the families sewing machine.
After having successful careers in the Hotel and Catering industry and then then Retail, Catherine made the brave decision to back into education at the age of 35 studying Textiles and Surface Design. Once graduated she began teaching art and design as well as running her own workshops.
It is only in the last 10 years that Catherine began exhibiting her work. This exhibition demonstrates her range of artistic skills in embroidery, photography, mixed media and print. She begins her work with research, taking photographs, sketching and collecting object's. Then moving into her sketchbook's, the ideas begin to develop until getting to a final piece.
