Catherine Higham


"Drawing is a medium I love and it is fundamental to my work. Drawn marks are used within
my paintings and prints, as a tool for developing ideas, sketching on site, and of course as a
medium in its own right.

Although each piece derives from a specific place, journey or experience, my artwork aims to
provoke an emotional response in the viewer; to pull them into the surface of the work and
encourage individual interpretation. My work often revisits themes of mapping, marks, traces,
erasure, transience, light, the passage of time and the sublime.

Since the birth of my baby last year, familiar walks through local landscapes take on a new,
enhanced meaning. When accompanied by a young child, the ordinary becomes captivating,
revelatory in fact.

I was born in Sheffield and currently live in the Loxley valley. I graduated in 2002 with a degree in Fine Art from Bath School of Art & Design (specialising in Painting) and then went on to study for a Masters in Landscape Design at the University of Sheffield. Since then, I have combined a career working as a Landscape Architect with the pursuit of my own artwork practice. Other activities include a tutoring role at the University of Sheffield's Landscape Department, focusing on art-based approaches to landscape design." Catherine Higham
