Mann works in water based paint and pencils on paper, the versatility of which allows her to make broad as well as linear marks. She uses a representational and semi abstract visual language, sometimes including a message to decipher. All subject matter — architecture, still-life, flowers, sea and landscape are treated in the same way, starting with a vague idea which grows organically, often being deconstructed and then reconstructed into a more abstract shape.She never knows what the finished work will be when she starts, although flowers tend to dictate the design as they all have their own unique characters.

Born in London in 1955, Catriona Mann graduated with an MA (Hons) in Fine Art from the University of Edinburgh in 1979. In 1986, having studied for a LL.B, also at Edinburgh, she was elected as a professional member of the Scottish Society of Women Artists in 1986 (now S.A.A.C). Her work has since been exhibited around the UK and is held in numerous collections in Scotland. She works both as a solicitor and as a practising artist, and draws much of her inspiration from her visits to Italy.
