Catherine Chinatree is Margate Based multidisciplinary visual artist, who is interested in the representational idea of shared “reality” with a focus on identity, dualism, and cultural fluidity. The work is supported with research in Anthropology, Social surrealism and human behaviour. Most of her inspiration comes from the outside world of everyday life, our daily activities, symbolism/ Rituals, and the people she meets. Her practice is both studio and outdoor based.
