Cathy Burkinshaw - Painter
I work in a studio in East Finchley where I paint in watercolour and oils. Also I enjoy using pastels and ink if the subject suggests it. I do commissions for portraits and buildings (in oils or water colours) One of my favourite sources of inspiration is birds!!! Their grace and serenity have a calming effect, as do the beautiful trees in Highgate woods.
Two exhibitions coming up this month - The Islington Art Society exhibition in The Stoke Newington Library in Edward Lane. A pretty oasis in an otherwise rough area. There are some beautiful pictures - so well worth a visit.
And The Highgate Watercolour Group exhibition in Lauderdale House - always a very popular event.
Also I'm very busy on a commission for a Russian family - friends of my daughter ( in oils) and a watercolour of Brixton Market for one of my friends, as her son has just bought a flat in Brixton - the picture will be a house warming present.
