Cathy Peckham was born in Alice Springs in 1958 and returned to Katherine with her family shortly after this. Cathy now resides permanently in Alice Springs, however, still considers Katherine her home.
Cathy loves doing arts and crafts, but it was not until recent years when she had an artistic carer that Cathy began to develop her skills in fine arts. She enjoyed painting with her carer, and found that calendars were a great place to source breathtaking landscape pictures from. During this time Cathy started collecting art and decorating her house. Some of Cathy's favourite works are traditional top end paintings, with cross hatching, animals and vivid colours.
Cathy paints landscapes from images and memories of growing up in the Northern Territory. Using a colour palette inspired by nature, Cathy enjoys the process of painting; the layering and blending of colours. Purple and green are two colours Cathy especially enjoys using in her work.
