Hi, and welcome to this gallery.


I am Catherine Arsaut, artist and printmaker.


Born in the southwest of France and now living in Lutuwita/Tasmania (Australia), an island both tranquil and wild. My life is deeply inspired by this beautiful place and my prints are a direct reflection of the land surrounding me, its distinctive flora and bountiful wildlife.  


I began my studies as a graphic designer in Bordeaux, France and it was then that I first discovered the art of printmaking, as I hand pulled linocut illustrations and made them the hero of my honours project.  From there I explored illustration, watercolour, oil painting, collage… I loved exploring all forms of art but the beauty of printmaking has always remained.


All prints showcased in this gallery have been carefully handcrafted in my studio in southern Lutuwita/Tasmania. I meticulously carve each plate, before running it through a hand powered etching press with beautifully crafted paper on top, and a thin layer of ink in between. The handmade nature of this technique means that every print will be ever so slightly different from one another, each bearing their own uniqueness.
