Artist and illustrator Catherine Stevenson was born in Mossel Bay, Western Cape, South Africa in 1997. She moved to Cape Town at an early age and has been living there since. In 2018 she obtained her diploma in Fine Arts at Ruth Prowse School of Art. Stevenson has participated in a number of small group shows, such as Ruth Prowse’s Annual Spring Exhibitions in 2016 and 2017, numerous pop-up exhibitions and group exhibitions at Art.B Gallery in Bellville. Along with her classmates at Ruth Prowse, Stevenson assisted Italian artist Valentina Collela as part of the Artist in Residency Programme. Stevenson mainly focuses on the mediums of paint on canvas/paper, gouache and watercolour illustrations and dabbles in film photography from time to time. She is inspired by nature, the simple and everyday beauties of life, and does not claim to have one specific style. Open to experimentation, her style is constantly evolving. She has given art classes to young children and has a passion for bringing out creativity in others.
