About Catherine Ley

In my art, I explore color and form in images primarily of nature – plants, trees and landscapes – using watercolor, ink and acrylics on large canvases. I am inspired by the Japanese esthetic, which emphasizes the “Ma” – negative space – and enjoy making compositions where what is not there – Ma – is as important as what is there. 
Painting provides a wonderful meditative counterbalance to my work as a scientist and allows me to visualize the beauty of the wider natural world.
