Cathy Pearce Painting my world

Associate Artist for Unison Colour

I am a landscape painter with a specific interest in pastel, although I do enjoy painting still life and using mixed media as well. I am also an Associate Artist for Unison Colour. Unison Colour make the extraordinary pastels, with which I paint every day, so I am thrilled to be able to work with them more closely, promoting their Handmade Soft Pastels.

My current venture with Unison Colour is my blog Colour, answering the question, "How do you choose your colours?".

Studio and Workshop Space

I have a wonderful studio and workshop space in Devizes Wiltshire, where I run various workshops throughout the year. Please see my Workshops page for the latest details.

I have been painting and drawing ever since being a toddler, always making things and being creative generally. I graduated from Central St Martins College of Arts and Design with a BA (Hons) in Printed and Constructed Textile Design.

I live on the edge of Roundway Down, with my potter husband Nick Pearce. We also have a small gallery here, where we hold a number of open studios throughout the year exhibiting our pottery and paintings.

I love to paint the landscape on my doorstep, particularly Roundway Down and still life. As I walk through the fields around Roundway, I might do some sketching and take lots of photos, which I will use later in my studio, to produce a finished piece of work. I also love to paint en plein air, working on small pieces, or preparing for my workshops. More recently I have been getting out to see and paint the bigger picture, the bigger views of Wiltshire too.
