Catherine Fleming is a self taught 25 year old artist based in Galway, Ireland. As a child Catherine spent most of her school years focusing on realism, predominantly portraits and botanical drawings. At the age of 11 Catherine held her first sell out exhibition in aid of the Burren Chernobyl Project.
As she grew older the more obscure began to interest her and at 16 she hosted her first solo exhibition where her pieces were heavily influenced by the music that inspired her at the time. From her early twenties onward her interest became combining the ideas of both realism and abstract which can be seen in her paintings today.
Over the last two years Catherine has explored themes of mental health and human expression through her work, how the truth of a person can be communicated via their body language alone. Catherine has exhibited in several exhibitions over the course of 2020, both online and in physical gallery shows such as Ambivalence with 33Contemporary Gallery in Chicago and the Winter Open exhibition in The Courthouse Gallery in Co. Clare.
Catherine currently resides in the coastal village of Spiddal in the west of Ireland where she works in her studio overlooking Galway Bay.
