Catherine Baker

A painter based in Llanellen

Catherine Baker engages in an ever present conversation with the changing seasons, colours and weather around her. ‘I go out walking through the seasons. I make lots of notes in my sketchbook and draw from life. That’s the starting point for all my work – it’s drawing from life from the landscape.’ For Llwyn Celyn Catherine created two large drawings – one in response to her visits to the site itself and the other to the wider landscape of the Llanthony Valley around it.
