Catharine Clarke



Catharine Clarke is a mixed media artist drawn to the textures and abstract qualities of the world around us. She loves experimenting with materials and enjoys the versatility and touchable effects she can achieve with acrylics and collage.

Her encaustic paintings are full of deep texture and contrasts. Much of Catharine’s current work explores juxtapositions of rigid structures with

natural and organic shapes.

She has exhibited in numerous group shows and currently displays her work

in Kemptville, Manotick,Ottawa, and the surrounding area. Her work can be

found in collections throughout Canada and the US.

Catharine teaches acrylics, mixed media and encaustics at her Kemptville studio.
