About Catherine Birrell
I have been painting since I was in my teen years.
I work at being true and honest with a style of my own that represents things only that best represent myself, those around me and my immediate community. I also have a strong interest in sporting images and writings that relate to Australian Rules Football, and the role sport plays within local communities.
My medium of choice is oil on canvas or acrylic on paper for smaller pieces. I have represented many book covers for the annual Footy Almanac books, and I have been a semi finalist for the 2016 Doug Moran Portrait prize and a 2017 finalist for the Portia Geach Portrait Prize for women.
I have initiated several community and local school based art projects as an artist in residence.
I have held two solo shows and participated in many community art events including the Chapel Street Art Town art projects.
I currently run my own studio in the Melbourne suburb of Glen Huntly in which I am able to explore local suburban life and the images that are produced within this space.
