Catherine Taron

Catherine is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Like many artists, she started drawing as a child but postponed serious painting until later in life. She is self-taught in water media techniques, and has a Bachelor of Science (Geography). Prior to taking up her paint brush, she worked for Parks Canada at Pacific Rim National Park and in Calgary, and then for the Government of British Columbia in Victoria. After her public service career, Catherine returned to art, inspired by the geography and natural history of Vancouver Island. She now interprets its landscapes primarily in watercolour and acrylics, with a focus on the changing moods and energies of the west coast and island communities. She’s lived on the Island for most of her life and in the Cowichan Valley, at Maple Bay, since 2003.

My intention is to explore painting with a light hand and limited palette. I try to capture the feeling of places I know, with a specific memory or story in mind.
