Catalina’s work stems from the notion of the ‘sublime experience’ in relation to memories and recollections of journeys to wild and isolated places, which invoke in her a sense of freedom.

Catalina uses natural and unusual materials like coffee, charcoal and metal powders. She makers her own paints and when possible extracts pigments either from specific places (Colombia) or through the application of chemical processes to prime materials due to her fascination with alchemy and experimentation. To her, the pigments are as important as the paintings, and therefore she includes them when exhibiting her work.
