Oils/Acrylic, Booth 1028
Catherine McMillan is a self-taught stencil artist based out of Seattle, Washington. Born and raised in Ontario, Catherine received a BSc in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Guelph and a MSc in Neuroscience from McMaster University. By layering hundreds of hand-drawn, hand-cut stencils and airbrushing acrylic paint, Catherine demonstrates a propensity for highly detailed urban streetscapes and still-life subjects that invite the viewer to experience variable perspectives. Whether observed from afar as traditional realism, or upon closer inspection, Catherine's pieces encourage a viewer's awareness of their innate preference for one perspective over the other, while rewarding those who look for a longer time. Catherine has participated in several national and international exhibits including the 2018 Artist Project Toronto.
