The Sober Painter

After stopping drinking in 2019, Cate Blanchard from Manchester, UK decided to swap a pint glass for a paintbrush and hasn't stopped since! Naming pieces after the numbered days of their sobriety, Cate specialises in textured abstracts with bold colours and shadows. 

Cate started Artfriends as a way to unite artists who are in recovery or suffer with mental health issues, providing a safe space platform for creators who may find admin based work difficult. 

Cate is open to all commissions and favours the bigger the better! they have shipped their pieces worldwide and have a number of collectors, so be quick! 

Cate has recent created work in NFT format which you can view and purchase here:
