Catherina Hubert paints with a bold, joyful palette reflecting the contrasting landscapes and cultures of Spain, Scotland, Brittany and the south of France where she has lived. "Painting is at the center of my life," she writes. "I paint to express the vibrant emotions I feel when I look. I paint because I love the song of nature.I paint to show the beauty of the world, to encourage us all to look after it. I paint because I strongly believe that art can help to heal the world." She studied drawing and painting with Elizabeth Raymond and won the first prize Beaux Arts de Paris. She now lives and works in East Sussex.
