Visual Artist, Lithographer, Maker, Drawing Tutor ...
Meticulous, considered drawing is the basis for Catherine Pilgrim's practice including lithographs, drawings and textiles. Fastidious attention to detail is the common element with personal narratives, history, absence and contemporary ideas around 'Still Life' influencing the subject matter.
Catherine has exhibited widely since 1994, when she returned to Australia after studying lithography and drawing in Washington DC, USA. In 2011, Catherine completed her Master of Fine Art (Research) at Monash University, Melbourne. Her research was based on the subjective process of capture, which occurs in making a representational image. Catherine has won awards for her intricate works on paper including the Australian Print Workshop Collie Print Trust Scholarship.
Catherine Pilgrim’s works are held in public and private collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Geelong Regional Art Gallery, National Australia Bank and Castlemaine Art Museum.

"Still - in a way - nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time." Georgia O'Keefe
