Meet the Artist from Across the Pond

Catherine Greenwood

Artist Biography

Catherine Greenwood, ​Fine artist, Printmaker, embodies the energy and spirit of the landscape and its elements through her release of self into the elements of the environment, capturing them in ink, pen and brush then further interpreting her relationship with the environment through translation into lithograph, Lino prints, woodcut, solar printing and combined expressions of art, print, music and dance.

Printmaking Catherine creates light filled energetic etchings and mono prints based on drawings made on coastal walks and visits to ancient sites. Observing nature and responding to seasonal changes are an important part of her response to walking in natural landscapes.

Catherine's direct experiences range from engaging with the swallows outside her studio, sitting on a frozen pond capturing the reeds and ice, creating environmental art on a river in Maine during a thirty-day environmental education river expedition, and immersing in the landscape and waters of the Isle of Skye during a two week Wildnerness Art Collective Retreat. As a member of the Wilderness Art Collective, Catherine promotes discussion and engagement in the natural world. She flows into the energy of the earth, allowing that to guide her expressions of sharing the depth of love many have for our planet. Her teaching brings groups to locations that provide an opportunity for the students to engage in a resonance with the landscape while her printmaking tutoring and workshops leads participants in developing the technical skills to present their personal experiences in printmaking.

Living in West Sussex, Catherine is creating lithographic prints, , woodprints and Lino cuts at her Green Print Studio, leading Art Walks on the South Downs and teaching Printmaking at Mill Street Etching studio, Suffolk, Putney School of Art, London & independently. She is a Member of Wilderness Art Collective and Salt Edge Arts.

"Having my work used as a music album cover is a dream come true for me, having the music inspired by my art has taken it into another dimension."
