Description : Please note- this original painting has been entered into the Wildlife Artist of the year 2021 award and can not be sold at this time, thankyou FOLKLORE In my painting Folklore this Australian magpie is caught holding a very beautiful sparkling earring that he has just thieved from an unsuspecting someone in his beak, his look in his eye a very content and determined look. I wanted to call it Folklore as that is what this painting is .... for generations you would hear that comment “thieving magpie” which actually comes from European folklore. It was widely believed that magpies would have steal sparkly things for their nests. In reality Magpies DO NOT steal trinkets and are actually scared of shiny things. I have painted Folklore in acrylic paint on a double thick high density stretched canvas. It will arrive to you ready to hang. I have left it unframed so then the choice is yours.

     Catherine Barolo is a self taught artist living in Melbourne, Australia.  

Catherine has been drawing ever since she was little.  A quiet child who would draw for hours and hours escaping life in the 1970's suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.

     Her paintings and stories were full of fairies, goblins and all types of animals, flowers and mythical creatures she would make up from her fantasy world she loved and imagined happened!


      Fast forward to 2022 and Catherine is happily married with 4 almost grown children and her dog Coco.  It has only been in the last two years Catherine has found time to concentrate on her art.  Catherine is a self taught artist and has exhibited her work in Melbourne and continues to sell her original paintings, prints and commissioned art through her website.  Catherine either works off her own photos or asks photographers permission to use their photos as reference.  Catherine loves to paint in acrylic and now teaching herself to paint digitally.  Each painting is carefully thought and planned out, subject, colour and composition to tell its unique story all in as much detail as she can.
