About

Cate

In March of 2010 I opened my Etsy shop to sell watercolor paintings directly from my studio, adding quickly archival prints of a quality that imitates the originals perfectly. In the years since, I have been featured in magazines, blogs and illustrated commercial projects for Godiva, Rita Ora, Oprah Magazine, Adidas & L'Oreal to name just a few.

My work is in numerous private collections, hotels and the book "Water Color Paintings by Contemporary Artists (chronicle books)".

Back in the studio I am at my happiest experimenting with new themes - stay in touch and follow me on IG & check back often for new work & prints!

For more original artwork, I invite you to visit my shop at http://store.cateparr.com/

Cheers, Cate

I have been fortunate enough to have some great reviews out there on the www....this was one of my favourites from the fabulous Cool Hunter Blog in Australia!

Cate enhances expressions with swirling color, hinting at the tension between interior and exterior beauty, creating an intense exploration of color with a traditional medium. Often influenced by fashion’s edgier side, Cate’s Paintings are executed with watercolour and ink and delivered to the paper by unconventional means.

'Anyone who has ever attempted to master various forms of visual art will attest that watercolour painting usually turns out to be one of the most challenging.
This has not discouraged Cate Parr, a UK-born artist, who has managed to capture the ethereal, fleeting and vulnerable qualities of fashion imagery in her watercolours.
There is a dreamy, beautiful undertone, yet the images are not entirely virginal. A darker undertone, beneath the pastelly beauty demands the viewer to look closer, a quality we admire in any image-maker’s work. In today’s world of a million images a second, it takes a lot to make any of us stop and pause and really see.
Parr’s work, which has appeared in both editorial and brand contexts, hasn’t been seen in massive formats or super-brand environments yet, but somehow we envision these images appearing in enormous window displays in the world’s fashion capitals this coming spring.'

Additional policies and FAQs
Museum Grade, archival paper and inks are used in all ORIGINAL ART & PRINTS.

HOW to take care of your PRINTS

I can not express enough times ...
1. Use acid free mats with your print.
2. Do not hang in a bright room and certainly not where sun falls onto the print.
3. Rooms with Humidity and Excessive Heat - Dont do it!

A good picture frame not only compliments your print but it will also protect it. Acid-free mats are used to prevent the glass from touching the surface of the print and these must be of archival quality.

Do not hang prints over radiators or air vents as heat changes can affect the print and can be responsible for the warping of the paper.

Avoid direct sunlight; prolonged exposure will cause the print to fade and the paper will yellow.

Prints should be hung with a slight forward tilt to leave space for air to circulate behind it.

Alterations due to light damage
Exposure to direct sunlight causes yellowing of the print and damage to the tones.
Yellowing is a natural oxidation of an old print. However, if not exposed to sunlight, prints will not become excessively yellow.

Damage due to humidity
The damage done by humidity is one of the most ruinous for prints not only because it favours the growth of bacteria but also because it will make the paper buckle, dissolve the sizing, destroy the assembled pieces (glued backings, etc.) and provoke the formation of spots and water marks.

Damage due to excessive heat
The destructive effects of heat are often closely associated to excessive dryness and to excessive humidity. When heat is very dry, paper becomes very brittle and friable and the coloured areas as well as the inks become scaly.
When heat is very damp, various kinds of plant life may begin to develop.
If the temperature rises excessively, the "burned" paper turns reddish or leaves a well known brownish border area.

CANVAS PRINTS are museum quality and will last 100 plus without fading or peeling when display indoors - they should not be used outdoors at any time. They are waterproof and abrasion resistant - however - like any piece of art it must be handled with care while transporting and hanging.
Do not scrape or rub corners on any surface! Keep bubble wrap corner protectors and the poly bag around your canvas when transporting.
DO NOT put CARDBOARD on the face of your print. It behaves like sandpaper and it will rub the ink off. CARDBOARD IS ENEMY # 1.

VERY IMPORTANT: © COPYRIGHT and REPRODUCTION rights remain with the artist Cate Parr and are not transferred with ANY sale. Unauthorized use of my artwork is taken very seriously and always reported to a copyright lawyer.

Viewing my Art on your computer, ipad, iphone
Screen colors: I adjust colors in photoshop whilst looking at the original art. It can be tricky so occasionally the base color looks slightly more cream than white.
Please be aware that colors vary from monitor to monitor.
