Catharine Clarke

Catharine Clarke is a mixed media artist drawn to the textures and abstract qualities of the world around us. She loves experimenting with materials and enjoys the versatility and touchable effects she can achieve with encaustics and mixed media. Her paintings are full of deep texture and contrasts as she explores juxtapositions of rigid structures with natural and organic shapes.

Catharine is represented by Koyman Galleries in Ottawa ( She has exhibited in numerous group shows and currently displays her work in Ottawa, Ontario and the surrounding area as well as in BC. Her work can be found in collections throughout Canada and the US.

Catharine teaches mixed media and encaustics at her Kemptville studio.
