 Catherine writes and lectures on historical and contemporary art. She has a PhD in Art History from UCL and is the founder and course leader of the Women and Art study programme at Sotheby's Institute of Art. She has curated a number of sell out events with a focus on women and art such as the Women's Lives Made Art event at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in summer 2017 in conversation with Deborah Levy. She also curated the popular Art Quarterly event for the How to Academy, has run popular art talks programmes at Blacks Club, on radical avant-garde feminism, and contributed to a podcast for Tate on Bloomsbury women with Bonnie Greer.  She has commented on selfies and art for Sky News, and on the Turner Prize for BBC Breakfast. Earlier this year she celebrated International Women's Day with a sell out talk on Suffragettes, Art, and #MeToo at the National Gallery which was a platform for testing much of the material that inspired the book. She blogs about images of women on her Instagram account @womeninthepicture and has been commissioned by the Australia Council for the Arts to run an event on women artists participating in the Venice Biennale 2019. In October 2019, White Lion will publish the reference book, The Art of Looking Up, written by Catherine. In 2020, Icon Books will publish her book Women in the Picture, a literary feminist polemic about historical archetypes and their reflection and persistence in contemporary visual culture.
