Little Red _ Borthwood .jpg

Hello - this is the little Catherine, aged around 2 and a half. After a childhood of colouring in and tracing Snoopy cartoon strips

I followed my dreams and studied art at Central St Martins.

Since then I have worked in schools as an artist, had two pop up books published and co run a puppet company. I have always been interested in the tactility of fabrics plus loved paint. so my reflects these two visual mediums.

Replacing a felt pen for a tufting gun or paintbrush feels natural. The limitless choice of colour in yarn or paint is exciting.

Finding a way of reducing waste by re-using yarn and waste yarn is an important part of my creative process.

The imagery in my work comes from everywhere. I am particulrly drawn to 1970's graphics and packaging, fuzzy felt, cut out doll kits, Snoopy, ice cream colour palettes, Jean Miro, and a crazy non matched mix of colour.
