Australian artist, Catherine Abel is renowned internationally for her striking figurative oil paintings.
Combining the stylised geometry of the Art Deco period with the clarity of the Italian Renaissance
Masters, her works are powerfully seductive compositions of beauty, strength and grace.
Self-taught, Abel began painting professionally after moving to Paris in 2000.
Influenced greatly by European art and history, she immersed herself in her painting, rapidly
building her reputation as a fine art painter.
She has exhibited in Australia, France and the USA and is a sought-after portraitist.
“Art history is a profound teacher.
To achieve mastery one only has to tap into the Greats who have gone before us
and surrender to their counsel. Their creative spirits still exist.”
