Cathy Smale

Cathy is a local artist based in Hitchin.


She now paints full time, creating bright bold works, inspired by landscapes and travels, near and far.  


The compositions are derived from sketches and photos, combining various images and aspects to describe an experience or place.


Retaining the original outline drawing, the paintings are built up in layers of lines, pattern and colour, using oil paint, brushes and palette knife.
