Catherine Bradford is a pebble artist who lives in the shadow of the Mournes at Katesbridge. Catherine has always lost herself in creativity and over the years has developed a passion for her natural surroundings, appreciating how nature grasps the landscape and sculpts everything in it’s path. Catherine’s work focuses purely on natural materials sourced from the local environment, with emphasis soley on pebbles. Every pebble used in the artwork has travelled thousands of miles, over millions of years, to rest in the area surrounding the Mourne Mountains.
As well as having her artwork displayed in the Mourne area, Catherine has her own studio nestled in Katesbridge’s drumlin countryside. Catherine has had a number of exhibitions and personal commissions, each one bringing originality and the all important personal touch. Alongside creating art and selling her own work, Catherine teaches classes and runs workshops.
