Artist Profile – Catherine Alexander – Drawing
Catherine started drawing natural subjects in early childhood, and studied fine art in college. Her work expands upon time-honored natural history illustration techniques by incorporating four different mediums to produce a wider variety of colors and textures. She often incorporates collage and antiquing techniques to create the look of an ancient drawing. Catherine believes few places on earth combine nature and culture as gracefully as Portland does, and says she is grateful to be a native Oregonian.
