Biography

Cat Burton is a fine art photographer based in Perthshire, Scotland. Her work is inspired by folklore and fantasy literature. Her images are calm yet eerie; a dark mystery drawing you in.

Cat’s artworks have been likened to the mood portrayed in Hitchcock films and she takes great inspiration from horror movies and fantasy fiction.

Her artworks are often composite images made up of multiple original photographs. Each piece takes many days to perfect in Photoshop and she only uses her own photographs to create them.

Her work has been exhibited across Scotland, including the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh. Artworks have also been exhibited at Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Perth Council (with the Perthshire Photographic Society) and at Edinburgh’s Ocean Terminal in a solo exhibition.

Artworks are available as signed limited edition prints through the web store and at various events. All prints are currently in stock at The Dark Room in Edinburgh and Tayberry Gallery in Perth.

Cat aims to collaborate with local Perthshire companies wherever possible in the running of her business.
