IMG_1406Born in Australia, Cathie van der Stel has spent most of her adult life in England and Holland, since 2001 she is living and working permanently in the South of France.

Her career as an artist originates in the textile industry where she focused on layout and design.
Now a full time artist, Cathie specializes in portraits, architectural renderings and natural scenery.  She recently attended an extracurricular art training at the Academie superieure des beaux- arts in Grasse and she is a member of an ever evolving group of artists “the Aquarellista’s” in Chateauneuf de Grasse.

“…Cathie is a very talented and diligent painter with a great feel for composition and light.
Her work stands out by its poetic subtleness…”
