Catherine Eichstedt uses a free, loose, bold style to express what she finds inspiring. She paints en plein air (outdoors) or in her studio with still life or using her imagination. Her approach is a combination of expressionism with a painterly style and at times she uses some abstraction. She paints on large canvases that make an immediate impression with lasting effect.
She has been drawing and painting from childhood and studied at the U of T, majoring in Fine Arts Studio. Each summer for the past 12 years Catherine has studied at the Haliburton School of the Arts with recognized Canadian Artists. Catherine has won many awards in Toronto and London. Currently she joyfully shares a beautiful, bright studio with London artists Moira Burke and Ingrid Connidis.
