Catherine Madro is an artist from Sydney Australia, who has drawn and painted for as long as she can remember.
Her painting style is mostly abstract and semi-abstract. She adores poetry and music, and beautiful prose often touches her deeply, providing inspiration for paintings. Her painting style is influenced by an ancient Chinese method called Mo-Ku that predates calligraphy, where many layers (or glazes) are applied for each painting. She has studied numerous art techniques including attending the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney for classical drawing and painting skills; sumi-e brushstroke painting and botanical drawing and painting. She draws on all of these disciplines in her art practice.
Stories, poetry, music, nature, the cosmos and quiet moments of reflection and meditation are my vision boards.
Watercolour is her favourite medium for the luminosity, pure colours and mystical effects possible. As a medium watercolour is very unpredictable, so it’s challenging to work with, but she loves the demand when painting with it. All of Catherine’s paintings are created on Arches handmade watercolour paper, with Winsor and Newton Professional watercolour paints. She sells original paintings and Giclée fine art prints of museum grade quality. The prints provide so many creative options – the artwork can be vastly enlarged and printed onto art paper, canvas, glass and other mediums.
