Hi, I am Catherina from Hamburg in Germany. I paint very soft and tender watercolors of birds and other creatures I love. I graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art in London, but after almost eight years in London I am back in my beautiful hometown Hamburg now where I live and work. At Art School, I built these huge Installation works out of found materials. They were large yet very fragile, and always temporary. The birds were part of the work in those days but soon took on a life of their own as I discovered my love of watercolor painting. I love animals and the natural world, without them, my work would not be there!
