There have been a slew of talented artists to emerge recently who can distill incredible visuals out of chaotically smeared watercolors and Catherine Hennessey is one of them. The up-and-coming portrait painter renders beautiful European-style faces using paints that she seemingly brushes onto canvases without a second thought, only to result in perfect images that confuse casual viewers as to how mistakes weren’t made. When you couple that with her spectacular ability to articulate pained expressions on her subjects, you have a distinct brand of artwork that magnetically attracts audiences.
Many will no doubt be surprised to learn that Catherine Hennessey is only 17 years old. Her capabilities and incredible portfolio of work would draw awe even by veteran standards, let alone being a Canadian art student still learning her craft.
