Catherine Hoskin

Catherine is a Cornish Artist who studied at the Falmouth College of Art where she gained a BA (Hons) in Studio Ceramics in 2001 having completed a Foundation Course in Art and Design at Chelsea College of Art, London.

For several years she worked within this discipline producing hand built stoneware vessels. The contrasting bands of textures and colours, evocative of the Cornish landscape, were the most predominant features within her work and appeared more important to her than form or function. Trading clay for board she began to explore a new rhythm of working through painting and drawing, which has since become a preferred medium in which to work.

Having lived near the sea for most of her life, sensitivity to the environment is evident in her paintings. Her affection for the Cornish coast continues to inspire and motivate her as she meets the challenges of painting a changing, evolving Cornwall.
