About Catherine Howard


Catherine Howard

Born in Saskatchewan and raised in Kingston, Ontario, I have been involved with art related endeavours my whole life.
My ambition is to portray the everyday beauty around us, to draw attention to the minutiae of life, to chase that elusive light, that illumination that fascinates me in paintings. I also wish to tell stories…. of people, books and places. The three separate series that I am currently working on are the ever changing and delightful Mill Creek in Orangeville, a narrative story of a fictitious couple, Jack and Anna and also a series portraying my interpretations of scenes from the Narnia books by C. S. Lewis.
Colour is my obsession and I am constantly experimenting and learning.
Working primarily in acrylics on stretched canvas, many of my paintings are done entirely with a palette knife, some with brush and others with a combination of both.
I find inspiration all around me, in music, in my favourite books and complete my
paintings either plein air or from my own photographs.
Many of my original paintings are available by contacting me directly.

“...and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”
¯ Vincent van Gogh

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others”
¯ Martha Graham
