Cath Hodson lives in Whitley Bay with her faithful hound Dot, who assists with her work as a print maker and laser cut dabbler.
While studying Textile Design Surface Pattern at the University of Derby, she developed a love for screen printing and a passion for colour.
Cath's designs are taken from her surroundings, the beautiful Northumbrian countryside, seaside and things that make her laugh.
When she's out and about she takes photographs and sketches ideas. From these she makes detailed drawings and then takes them down to their most simple form. Using scissors and black paper Cath creates the shapes for her design. She says for her the really fun part is playing with colour and screens to get the end result.
"The great thing about screen printing is you never really know what your image will look like until the final colour goes down...so there is always that element of surprise".
