Original screen prints by Catherine Bowdler
With a background in printed textiles (Bournville College of Art, Loughborough College of Art and Design) Catherine has an affinity with pattern, composition and colour. Catherine produces striking designs inspired by the natural world, in particular featuring some of her favourite British birds. Now creating works on paper, Catherine is able to make affordable prints in low editions that compliment both modern and traditional interiors. She exhibits her work in galleries and exhibitions across the UK.
Catherine is a collector of mid century design, but for some years the balance and ingenuity of Japanese textiles has become a major reference point. These influences infuse a subtle flavour to the work. She draws and develops her designs in a home studio with dark room, and prints all her work by hand, in her 1950s English Rose kitchen.
Catherine enjoys going to museums, sketching, birdwatching and reading about the Pre-Raphaelites.
