South African landscape painter and artist Catherine Paynter was born in 1949 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Catherine is known for her still life and marine paintings but is mainly a landscape painter.
For inspiration she has travelled throughout her native land, South Africa, and to Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Egypt, Madagascar and further afield to Iran, Israel, Spain, Italy as well as Winnipeg and Boston in the depths of mid-winter to observe snow. She paints with gouache on cotton canvas achieving rich glowing tones in delicately superimposed layers of colour, using mica and gold, aerosol and liquid acrylic varnishes. She undertakes commissions and has an exhibition about once a year.
A selection of original work will be exhibited for sale at Imibala Gallery.

Art is for everyone. The Imibala Galleries provide a visual platform for both contemporary South African artists and international artists to showcase their work. As the Gallery in Somerset West is an integral part of Imibala, children attending art classes see the work of established commercial artists, attend workshops, and therefore are exposed to the world of fine art which enhances their creative development.
All work on exhibition in the Imibala Galleries are also available to view online, with profits earned through sales of art used to support of the work of the Imibala Trust.
The Galleries are located at the heart of Somerset West and Graaff-Reinet respectively. In Somerset West we are adjacent to the Imibala Restaurant and Trust in Bright Street and in Graaff-Reinet, we adjoin the historic and exclusive Drostdy Hotel.
