Hello, and a warm welcome to my gallery.

Catherine Sturnham

Painting has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. Even after many years I still feel a real thrill when faced with a blank canvas.

I moved from Somerset to Caithness with my family in 2013 so am still exploring the wonders of the far north. The huge skies, dramatic landscapes and rugged coastline are a world away from the lush greens of Somerset. Caithness is a painters dream so I am really spoilt for choice. If I like it, I paint it which is why there are such a wide variety of subjects in my gallery.


My studio overlooks the Caithness hills and the fields of our smallholding. I can see our Jacob sheep grazing and the chickens happily free ranging. The hills constantly change; sometimes bathed in the sunlight of the long summer days or cloaked in sinister dark clouds as the wild winters make their presence felt.

I hope that you enjoy browsing through my gallery. I accept commissions so please contact me if you have some suggestions, ideas or even just for a chat.
