“Art is the ability to identify with others by capturing place, spirit and story onto a blank canvas. This process is one which connects artist with subject, subject with artist and artist with viewer. I consider this to be the ultimate prize, and pure privilege.”
Catherine Boreham is a wife, mum of two teenage boys, and artist who has lived in Yeppoon for 16 years. Among art, Catherine loves to spend time at the beach surfing and loves attending her mixed martial arts training sessions.
Before Catherine moved to Yeppoon, her dream was to pursue her talent in the arts. Whatever job she held; her desire was simply “to be an artist”. Although that desire began as using the family BBQ as an easel, she has finally begun to see this reality come to life.
Catherine felt a sense of achievement when she became a finalist in prestigious awards such as; The Baton Award, The Gladstone Rio Tinto Award and The Percival Tucker Portrait Prize. She also had her piece published in the Percivals 2019 book. She believes these were her first major accolades in the art field for all her years of hard work, determination, persistence and humble attitude. Other achievements of note are donations to various charities, such as her recent portrait of Jonathon Thurston, donated to the J.T. Academy.
Catherine is best recognised for her representational style, depiction of seascapes and life like portraiture. She works mainly in oils, acrylics and pencil, however also likes to experiment with different mediums and styles.
As a young person Catherine attended private art lessons and has been mentored by numerous successful artists. One of her greatest joys now is passing her experience on, to a wide variety of students. One of Catherine's great qualities is seeing the potential in others and celebrating their successes.
Commissions have been a constant source of work throughout her career. For this she has been extremely grateful. Commissions have pushed her to complete diverse subject matter and fuelled her journey in ways she couldn't have predicted. Even though commissions might not always be a subject of choice, she feels privileged to be continually entrusted with people's memories and loved ones. Presenting an artwork that truly represents a person, place, moment or memory is something that brings her joy and a sense of accomplishment.
Catherine prides herself on her ability to connect with people from any walk of life and believes that everyone is of value, has a story to tell and a story worth sharing. Her easy- going, laid back nature makes this effortless.
Catherine is excited about what the future holds for her art and is thankful for her dedicated studio space and her many easels. Catherine also believes “My best art will be tomorrow” - Author Unknown.
Life is an exciting adventure, where small successes are to be celebrated and the journey is more important than the destination.
