ABOUT Collections

I make the art I’d like to see in the world and I’d like to share it with you.  Not everyone will get it, each travellers journey is different sometimes destination is all sometimes the journey, the pilgrimage is the thing. 

My collections are about aspects of my journeys and consist of approximately 9 works per collection.

Pre 2015 Collection


In the beginning Suns

At the start of a new project or a new phase of work I have always painted a Sun, we are all Stardust, and the sun is our nearest star dash and recognition under light at our fortunate point in the cosmos I paint joyful vibrant Suns and Sunscapes

Pre 2015 Collection

Through the trees

The trees rise through

These are a selection of older paintings inspired by trees. The beauty and strength and the shapes and screens they make have always been an inspiration.

Artist Biography.

Lisa Catherwood has been working as an artist and designer for almost thirty years, exhibiting in oils, watercolours and pen and ink.   

Northern Ireland born and largely self-taught, she cites influences which include Kathleen Kelly her Grandmother, an exquisite watercolourist, and Irish Artist Lawson Burch who taught her art for a number of years.  

 Her artistic philosophy is rooted in a deep sense of wonder at nature, and of humanity’s many achievements always with an eye to that fluid border between light and those ‘dark corners’ which hold the horrors of existence.

 Where others travel to experience, Lisa journeys through the creation of art; exploring the impact of light, colour and line on animals, places and people – beings of incredible magic and beauty, spirituality, creativity and splendid flamboyance.

I have journeyed far in my mind, always aware that whatever gods there be we are made of starstuff.

Shackled, but undeterred, by the debilitating and recurring illness known as M.E. she continues to hone her skills – a refuge, a meditation, a celebration.

With her work she hopes to share with the viewer a sense of vibrancy and excitement in existence through light and colour and line. 

‘Fish Called Wonder’ is the latest series of works exploring koi – symbols of love and friendship in Japan.

She has work currently for sale at The Yard Gallery in Holywood Co. Down.
