Catherine Hillis paints both en plein air and in the studio, competing nationally in plein air and watermedia events.
“Lots O’ Lines” was created from a series of photographs taken in Apalachicola, Florida, during the St. George Island Paint Out. The town is rich in subject matter and is a favorite spot for artists to paint. Even though the Florida panhandle has suffered through hurricanes, fires and economic downturns, a stubborn determination to survive is evident everywhere. These fishermen were patiently working as a team to put their lines in order before the next day’s work. Catherine finds beauty in most humble corners and especially enjoys taking a chaotic scene, such as this, and putting it in order.
Catherine has participated in the arts all her life, majoring in theatre in college and working as an actor and costume designer in her early adult years. She turned to painting when her children were young, choosing watercolor as her specialty. She paints landscapes, cityscapes, still life and figures. She teaches workshops all over the world and offers classes locally near her home studio on historic Saint Simons Island, Georgia.
