Catherine grew up in East London, where he studied at the East London Technical School of Art. He began his career as a commercial artist in the early 1970s in Johannesburg. Shortly thereafter, he began collaborating with Walter Battiss on a project on Fook Island, which involved the building of Fook Manor at Hartebeespoort Dam, designing murals and merchandising."
