Catherine Perehudoff is a Canadian landscape painter. She has lived in many places and her travels are reflected in the diversity of her landscapes.
Catherine is the daughter of well-known Canadian artists William Perehudoff and Dorothy Knowles. So she grew up in a home full of art and artists and was encouraged to paint from a young age.
Catherine studied Painting and Textile Arts at Voss Folkehogskule in Norway in the late 1970’s. Afterwards she went to the University of Saskatchewan and graduated with a B.A. in Art History, which solidified her interest in becoming a landscape painter.
She attended the Triangle Artists’ Workshop in Pine Plains, New York, the Emma Lake Artists’ Workshops in Saskatchewan, and the Symposium of Young Artists in Baie St. Paul, Quebec. These experiences helped to develop her artistic vision and skill.
Catherine lived in New York for a year and worked for artist Kenneth Noland at his South Salem studio. As a landscape painter, the surrounding scenery of upstate New York and Connecticut influenced her. During this time she developed an interest in the Hudson River school of landscape painters.
Catherine is a renowned landscape painter in her own right, who has exhibited in art galleries, art museums, and art fairs across Canada; and internationally in London, England; Voss, Norway; Paris, France; various cities in Italy; and the USA.
