Melbourne born Catherine Wallace now lives and works on the Gold Coast, Australia.

Creativity has always been a big part of Catherine's life. As a past owner of Sticky Fingers Cake Decorating, she was known for her cake sculpting and decorating skills. After selling her business in 2005, she needed a creative outlet and found art. Dabbling in all forms of medium, finally settling on oils as her dominant choice.

Naturally enough Wallace leans towards detail in her realism style. She particularly loves using a limited palette, preferring to mix her chosen colours.
Rather than looking at the broader picture she focuses on a close up macro view of her subjects.

Her work includes landscapes, portraits and still life, taking inspiration from her own life and interests and reflecting what is happening around her at that moment.
In her own words she describes her work as “A pictorial journey of my life - like a library of books only in paintings”
