Cathy McClelland is a contemporary realist, wildlife and landscape Australian artist, working in acrylic, oils and mixed media.
A member of the prestigious International Guild of Realism (Invitational), Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists, Australian Guild of Realist Artists, Wildlife Art Society of Australasia and Queensland Wildlife Artist Society Inc. and is a globally collected painter with work in private and corporate collections Australia wide and worldwide.
Born in Dalby, Queensland, Australia and being the fifth generation to own the family farm, she has always had a passion for nature. As a child Cathy rode and hiked around her farm and the local Bunya Mountains National Park, observing and drawing the birds and wildlife in their natural habitat.
Cathy has a natural ability to see beyond the 'picturesque' beauty of a scene, she can also feel the spirit of the landscape and paints this feeling - an emotional response to the scene - rather than painting a literal depiction”. She has a gift of portraying the essence of the place.
As with most Artists, Cathy’s work is ever evolving, developing interesting textures, new colors and experimenting with new techniques. .
