Cat Coulter Artist Profile

Cat Coulter works in Fife and London. She creates assemblage sculpture and original prints from found objects, notably plastic marine debris. This is used either as raw materials in compositions or transformed into cyanotype prints. Cat's work is inspired by the rising levels of plastic pollution on the beaches near her studio in Scotland and in the Thames. Her materials and themes are dictated by the tides and our times. Lockdown restrictions have led Cat to concentrate on cyanotype photograms in 2020/21, with a particular focus on the environmental impact of the 'new normal'. 

Her work transforms waste plastics into deceptively beautiful but dystopian images which invite the viewer to consider the impact of our throwaway society on the marine environment.

Cat has made art for many years whilst pursuing a variety of other occupations before finally prioritising her art practice in 2019. 

Cat is proud to be an artist member of ArtCan, an international, non-profit organisation supporting working artists, SplashTrash, Visual Artists Association and East Neuk Open Studios.
