Catherine Dowell


  • Catherine took a Foundation course and then an honours degree in Fine Art at Coventry University – School of Art and Design.  She is married to Spencer Instone, and has made Tewkesbury her home since 1992.


  • “When I first started painting (many years ago) I was just fascinated and amazed by the beauty of the world around me. Over the years that I have been painting my work has developed. I continually see more in the complex world of nature and how it fits into the framework of our daily living.
  • I am still interested in representing the natural world, but as I have matured I also feel the need to express my own feelings in the work, and my own relation to the natural world around me.
  • I try to use colour and line to express my relationship to nature, as well as taking inspiration from the textures and colour mixes that appear in the world around us.
  • I am a painter because that is the way I communicate and not through words like these.  So I hope that you will better understand my feelings for nature through looking at my work and hopefully you will also enjoy the paintings.”
