Catherine Hyde grew up in North Kent and trained in Fine Art Painting at Central School of Art in London (1979-82). She is well known for her atmospheric and symbolic work and latterly also for her award winning illustration. She now lives in Cornwall and works at the top of her house in her ‘studio in the sky’.
‘I am interested in images that touch upon the liminal, evoking visceral sensations and stirring memories of being the watcher in the landscape, witness to the wild movements of birds and animals.’
‘She is, if you will, a visual poet weaving images, symbols and archetypes into paintings that resonate in the subconscious and linger there like half- remembered dreams or the dark fairy stories with which she has such affiliation’. Pip Palmer, Galleries Magazine
