In 1992 Catharine used her studio and created an artist’s cooperative called Herringbroom Studio, in Sussex UK. She continues to hold workshops and lecture in both England and Canada.

She writes” It is my intention to explore colour relationships that create an emotional response similar to the feeling music might create. Fundamental to my practice is the perception of colour in a work of art and the influence it might have on a person’s psyche”.
