Cathy Hughes is an artist born and reared in Westport. Growing up Cathy spent many Summers on Old Head Beach with the majestic Croagh Patrick towering in the background. Cathy is intrinsically creative and has immersed herself in various art courses and colleges in Ireland and Italy. At Burren College of Art she trained with a renowned international German abstract artist. It is here that she honed her craft and experimented with the inclusion of textiles in her works.
Cathy’s works all touch on threads of Celtic, marine and Irish heritage, communicated onto canvas through imagination and memory. Her paintings are made richer from the inspired inclusion of craft relics, antique maps and woven textiles such as Aran sweaters and tweeds.
