Catherine Chan is a visual artist based out of Vancouver, BC whose work reflects upon themes of environmental and social sustainability, the passage of time, memory and impermanence.

Catherine graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver with a BFA in Photography. Prior to attending art school, she was a research scientist in the natural sciences after completing an Honours BSc degree at the University of Toronto in Biogeography and Physics, and an MSc degree at the University of Guelph in Soil Science. Her experiences in the natural sciences continue to inform her practice.

Her inspiration comes from the landscape, beauty found in unexpected places, and from the openness of people’s hearts.
