The King by Catherine Barolo

ARTIST NOTES: THE KING.. What an absolute dream to paint. This is the very first lion I have ever painted and I pushed all the boundaries with this one concentrating on detail. I wanted the lion to look as real and regal as possible and I think he speaks volumes. His is gorgeous in real life and would make an amazing presence for you to admire for a lifetime.

Artist: Catherine Barolo



     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.

                                                                                                                                              This is just the beginning...
