From digital prints, fashion and fabric design, to fine art work, I have been a Cape Town creative for over sixteen years. In the art world my mother, Gail Catlin, has been my number one influence and mentor throughout my life. She has been teaching me for as long as I can remember and has pushed me to create new ideas and techniques to grow as a well-rounded artist. I have found most of my success as an artist through my oil paintings, but I have most recently been working on perfecting my new style of 3 dimensional (3D) perspex art which is a use of both my fine art and digital design background. I am currently working towards having a full 30 piece exhibition in this style.

 

In addition to art work, in 2013 I designed a range of tablecloths and napkins using high quality cotton and cotton linen and inspired by summer flowers and pastel shades. In line with 2014 colour trend forecast, these are perfect for brightening indoor and outdoor table settings. All locally manufactured, my fabrics are ‘proudly South African’!
