Cathy Taylor | Profile


Since my Fine Art degree show in 1990 , I have combined painting , with a variety of art-based jobs such as sculpting marine habitats in sea-life centres , along with working in our family fishing and diving holiday business.

I work mainly in watercolours and oils and love colour and detail.

Previous exhibitions include the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Finals 2009 and 2010, and the Society of Wildlife Artists Annual Exhibition 2009......and now David Shepherd WAY 2011 at the Mall Galleries in London 6th-11th June.  

As well as painting the sea and the creatures that live in it, I also specialise in human and animal portraiture, ,and am always available for commissions.

Galleries: Active Portraits. : Animal Portraits : Discards : Family Memories : Life Drawing : Old Friends : Portraits and Marine Wildlife. : Seascapes : The Painting Shed #2

More Information About Cathy

My paintings vary from delicate watercolours to bold oils and graphite drawings. I work from life and from photos, often combining images from either with those from my imagination. Whatever medium I am working in, I enjoy detail.

I do a lot of portraits, animal and human. These tend to be from photos, often a painting is of multiple subjects using many photos.

Having been brought up by the sea, learning to dive at an early age, I love to paint it, and the creatures that live in it.

Commissions undertaken  Available by appointment all year   

Portrait artist,   Marine wildlife artist,  Pet portrait artist.
