Catherine Hyde

Artist, Writer, and Award-winning Illustrator

Helston, Cornwall

‘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



Lighthouse Gallery, Penzance

Foss Fine Art, London

and represented by Lucinda Dalton, Art Dealer



‘My paintings strive to create an atmosphere that touches upon the liminal, evoking visceral sensations of moments or memories of being the watcher in the landscape, witness to the wild movements of birds and animals.’
