Much of the inspiration for her landscape work comes from campervan travels and family holidays around Scotland. She loves the wide open spaces, vast moody skies and low light of the Scottish West Coast and the Hebrides and tries to capture the essence of these special places. There is a sense of simplicity, space and solitude in her work, which often features the unique calming colours of the Scottish land and sea – soft greys, emerald greens, muted blues and purples.
Cath’s process starts off on location where she takes digital photographs of the landscape.
Back in the studio she uses a computer to blend the landscape photography with sections of additional photographs to add texture, colour and depth.
Each finished piece might have between 10 and 20 layers of collage in addition to the original landscape photograph.
