About The Artist

Catherine Ingleby is one of the foremost sporting artists in the UK, annually represented in exhibitions worldwide, with works in many notable private collections, including that of HM the Queen, and several prominent racing stables.

Catherine is consistently picked to show in prestigious juried exhibitions, and is proud to be a partner artist to the David Shepherd Wildlife Trust. She is passionate about wildlife conservation, regularly donating artworks to help raise funds.

Catherine spent several years training as an artist in Paris and Florence accumulating a solid basis of draughtsmanship on which to base her now instantly recognisable style of dramatic light and movement. She now works full time in her studio in Berkshire, with a plethora of pets that both aid and abet her. She is known for her contemporary take on traditional subjects, and her ability to capture the fleeting sense of movement in her work.

Catherine undertakes a limited amount of commissions a year; some are formal portraits, others, action paintings of sports horses or dogs and recently a few of people!

Please contact her directly to discuss the commission process.

Artist’s Statement

I love to paint animals, always have, and feel very privileged that I now make my living from doing so. In my current phase of work, I aim to explore the movement of animals and develop a distinctive use of colour and brushwork.

There is a very simple joy in the observation of animals, in their uncomplicated joy of small things, or their unconscious beauty. I aim to explore this in my work, from the light-hearted pieces of jumping dogs to the more traditional works portraying the majesty of the big cats.

I try in my art, to lift the viewer’s heart a little, and I hope to make work that is accessible to all and to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary. I am obsessed with colour in my work, echoing the colours and patterns of the animal I have chosen to paint in bolder combinations in the background. I find the intensity of patch of pure pigment, cadmium orange next to deep purple in a tiger’s coat, for example, is far more interesting than a faithfully lifelike representation of colour.

About The Artist

I have been painting watercolours seriously for over 30 years, initially as a facility to illustrate my own work as an Architect which developed into providing that service for others. An interest in the built environment, landscape and setting focussed interest of early paintings on buildings in landscape and townscape, inevitably leading me to a traditional taste in subject matter. Although such subjects from real life are still an inspiration, my work over the last ten years has been orientated toward effects of light and the development of a technique which captures this.

Subject matter is often the depiction of life ‘en plein aire’, instigated by the quality of light and form. To capture the moment, watercolour is the ideal medium and my approach has been traditional, even to the extent of not using white body colour (this is a personal preference, because of the ‘alien’ effect of body colour in a transparent medium rather than a criticism of those who use it). I also try to avoid the use of masque but this is mainly because the essence of ‘plein aire’ is usually a fleeting quality of light which does not allow the time necessary for the use of masking mediums.

Studio paintings are different, but even in in these circumstances I prefer to preserve white surfaces while painting or to lift colour in the process. I also tend to use natural earth colours as much as possible; this is partly because they best suit my normal subject matter but also because, unlike a staining colour, they can be lifted when dry to create ‘whites’. I also tend to use a heavy, rough watercolour paper as my support, which lends itself to techniques for manipulating colour including scratching to produce highlights.

One cannot practise watercolour painting and be unaware of the many great practitioners of the art, both alive and dead. One can admire some, such as John Yardley whilst recognising his approach would be impossible for me, whereas examples from John Blockley, Trevor Chamberlain, Lucy Willis and even Russel Flint and Rowland Hilder have all contributed to my own technique.

Art Groups / Exhibitions

I have occasionally submitted works to national exhibitions and have had works accepted on several occasions by the Royal Society of Marine Artists. This is valuable as a means of getting work seen by a wider audience, but the high percentage of sale taken by the gallery does not make this financially advantageous. I therefore prefer to exhibit where my work can be presented for what I consider to be a fair price, without the need to overprice to meet the gallery commission. I also provide watercolour tuition to local groups and occasional commissions.

About The Artist

Sera has been drawing and painting since childhood. She paints mainly in watercolour, acrylic and mixed media. Tackling human figure and perspective has always been her favourite subjects but she enjoys the challenge of different subjects. Regardless of the subject, to be able to use the light cleverly, create a mystical atmosphere together with technical and emotional strength is her aim. Sera also paints on glass objects to the effect of stained glass and exhibits these separately.

Born in Ankara, Turkey, Sera has a degree in Architecture. She lived in Stavanger, Norway from 1980 to 1993 and worked as an architect in the oil industry. Now living in the Woking area of Surrey,  Sera is a member of various art societies and groups and exhibits her work regularly with these. She also teaches adult education classes and tutors private groups in mainly watercolour, mixed media and drawing mediums.
