|Catriona Macdonald MacEachen lives in Fife and works as a professional artist.
Art has been her passion for as long as she can remember and although mainly self taught, she excelled in Art at school and went on to specialise in Art while undertaking an Education degree in Glasgow.
She was born in Kirkcaldy, Fife and although a proud Fifer, her roots are firmly embedded in the Hebrides and North West of Scotland. Regular trips there greatly influence her work.
Catriona's work is influenced primarily by her love of nature and wildlife. The intense colours, perpetually changing light, perfect forms and dramatic land and seascapes of the natural world of her homeland are a constant source of fascination and inspiration.
She uses a variety of media depending on the mood or atmosphere she wishes to reflect. She often works in acrylic to capture the vivid hues of a dramatic Hebridean sunset. She may use pastel to create a softer mood or sometimes oils for seamless blending of colours in a portrait.
Catriona's artwork is growing increasingly popular and she has many pieces in private collections both in the UK and abroad.
She successfully exhibited at Heron Gallery during Pittenweem Arts Festival in August 2011 and in January 2012 at The Airport Gallery, Edinburgh. She will also be exhibiting at The Airport Gallery from March to July 2012. Catriona is currently exhibiting at Pitlochry Festival Theatre until April 2012 and will shortly be exhibiting some pieces at Merchant Gate Gallery in Glasgow. From April 2012 she will also be exhibiting at Artery Gallery in St. Andrews and then she has a solo exhibition of her new work back at Pitlochry Festival Theatre in the River Room in Summer 2012 (16th July - 31st October).
