Emerging artist exploring portraiture as a reflection of the quieter inner states of feeling. Strength, fragility, and imperfection are recurring themes throughout my work.

  • About

    Cat’s artwork is delicate, subtle and reverent. Drawn to portraiture and a fascination with the human face, her subjects range from largely unknown counter-culture poets and their audience to people and children she knows well.

    Strength, fragility, and imperfection are recurring themes throughout Cat’s work, as she explores the quieter states of inner feeling and seeks to draw out the common threads of experience that bind us together.

    Cat works primarily in oils, ink and charcoal.

  • Biography

    Born in Northern England in 1972, Cat Doyle has been living in the Southern Highlands for the last 13 years.

    Cat developed her visual aesthetic through an interest in photography over many years, with a particular love of black and white photography and the representation of abstract forms on film.

    In the last few years Cat turned her hand to painting and drawing, learning through life drawing classes, workshops, books, experimentation, conversation and mentorship with fellow artists.

    She works from her shared studio in Robertson NSW and had her first solo exhibition ‘Ode to Poetry’ at the SHAC Annex Gallery in March 2021.
