This drawing possibly shows the artist's own bedroom at Lorne Lodge, Sling Lane, Malvern.  The drawing style is typical of that used  by Moody to illustrate the Sihouette of Malvern.  Catherine was the daughter of the artist Victor Hume Moody and  studied under him at Malvern School of Art, at Royal College of Art with Gilbert Spencer and at Birmingham College of Art under Bernard Fleetwood-Walker.  She taught at Manchester College of Art, then was head of Malvern School of Art, 1962-80.   She was a designer for Dent Allcroft and wrote Silhouette of Malvern, 1953, and Painter's Workshop, 1982. Catherine Moody was especially drawn to working in pastel producing interiors, compositions and portraits.  She was a member of Pastel Society  and president of Malvern Art Club. She showed at PS and RP. Worcester City Art Gallery and Malvern Festival Theatre hold her work. She lived in Malvern, Worcestershire.
