Born in Belfast in 1940, Catherine McWilliams attended Belfast College of Art and combined painting with teaching as an art tutor in various schools. McWilliams' expressive use of paint and brushwork is indeed the predominant feature of her painting, while her strong sense of observation gives the work an entirely personal feeling for the familiar, be it the hills of North Belfast or a breakfast table.

Landscape is the most prominent recurring theme of her work and her recent work shows an increasingly secure and settled attitude, focusing on the strong outlines of Cave Hill and the suburbs of North Belfast.
