Featured Artist

Catherine Clark Dowden

“There is a magic to animals that consumes me as an artist. I am driven to capture their spirit and energy, the sheer drama of their movement. I turn to many different mediums to bring my work to life, from pencil drawings, mixed media, oils, right through to large scale painted murals on occasion. I find art so very rewarding; it is challenging and can be frustrating at times, but the more I do, the more inspired I become. The possibilities are endless with art!”
