Catherine Parsonage is currently following a BA (Honours) degree course in fine art at Manchester Metropolitan University and from September 2011 will be undertaking an MA at the Royal College of Art. Her work has been seen at group exhibitions in Manchester and in Munich as the result of an Erasmus study award at the Acadamie Der Bildenden Kunste.

The portrait is of Parsonage’s friend, Charlotte and began as an exercise in reflecting illness and mortality. Parsonage wanted to create a contemporary portrait, but employ the translucent skin tones and glazes that fascinated her in early Netherlandish art.
