Catherine Goodman studied at Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts 1979-84, and at the Royal Academy Schools 1984-87. She won First Prize in the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery in 2002, following which the Gallery commissioned a portrait of Dame Cicely Saunders for its collection. She is represented by Marlborough Fine Art, at which she has exhibited since 2004. In addition to solo shows with the gallery in London and New York, she has had other major solo exhibitions including Portraits from Life at the NPG in 2014 and one in 2019 at Hauser & Wirth Somerset following five months as Artist in Residence. Her work is held in numerous private and public collections including the NPG, Fitzwilliam Museum and the Royal Collection Trust.  She combines her art practice with that of an educator, and in 2000 she co-established the Royal Drawing School with HRH The Prince of Wales, to address the increasing absence of observational drawing in art education. She continues in her role as Artistic Director and was awarded the Royal Victorian Order in 2014, for her services to the School.
