Meet The Maker – Catherine Green

Catherine Green – artist and designer

Catherine’s work incorporates print and stitch on beautifully tactile fabrics such as velvet and satin to create vibrant, tactile pieces. She builds up layers of dye, both printed and painted, before using devore techniques to remove the fabric surface to reveal the delicate silk beneath, creating an almost three dimensional effect.

Catherine works intuitively from her first point of reference and enjoys allowing the design to change and evolve as the piece progresses through each process.

Catherine takes inspiration from the rural and urban areas around her studio in Yorkshire which appear to combine and contrast in perfect harmony; spiky grasses and seed heads set against a backdrop of a geometric cityscape alongside more rural landscapes inspired by the Yorkshire Dales and coastal pieces influenced by the dramatic East Coast.

Alongside her original textile pieces Catherine has developed a range of products to compliment her artwork including greetings cards and prints developed from professional photographs of her work and a new ‘nature inspired’ range of tea towels, all printed here in the UK.

Developing her work further Catherine has created a complimentary selection of screen printed pieces including marine plywood wall art with patterns screen printed directly onto the wood with an insert of co-ordinating screen printed fabric.
