Sculpture by Nick Mackman & Anthony Theakston

Catherine Hyde trained in Fine Art Painting at the Central School of Art in London. Originally from the South East of England, she now lives in Cornwall and exhibits nationally. Her work is collected worldwide. Catherine is well known for her intellectual and symbolic paintings, charged with atmospheric and iconic images. They have a dreamlike magical quality, combining symbolism derived from Greek, Norse, European and Welsh myths. “I use the archetypal hare, stag, owl and fish as emblems of wildness, fertility and permanence: their movement and journeys through the paintings act as vehicles that bind the elements and the seasons together”. Catherine has illustrated a number of books. The latest, ‘Little Evie in the Wild Wood’ has just been published and this exhibition includes artwork from the book.
