Catherine Pallin was first guided by Sydney artist Michael Herron to explore drawing age 7 and painting at age 15. Michael is still a strong influence for her. She feels a strong influence from nature and you can see this in her work. Currently she paints with the Neami Art group in Murray Bridge. ‘The images I create are all about the energy they emit, adding that to the room they are hung in. I wish to create healing images that help move or settle energy, whatever is needed for the space’.
