Catherine was born in 1982 in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Growing up in an area filled with performance theaters and museums she was exposed all of the arts at a very young age. Catherine’s first passion was music; however, after her family moved to the Orlando area she was introduced to painting and photography and the shift in interest to visual/fine arts began.
While in the AP art magnet program at Dr. Phillips High School, she utilized all the resources available in both the graphic and fine arts departments. After high school Catherine continued working on her technique. While traveling and photographing everything, she created a concentration on deep geometric abstract. This evolved into the collection, “city blocks,” exemplifying her passion for cities and the abstract vibe that comes naturally with the heartbeat of every city across the world. Catherine then began infusing her photography images taken from cities around the world to the rich painting style in the overall collection of graphic works. This merge allowed Catherine the freedom to create mixed media works such as the American Quilt and The Bugle Boy (a photograph symbolic of New Orleans’ rebirth—a child performer in New Orleans only 3 years after hurricane Katrina). The image is set in the city blocks background with copper leaf framing around the black and white photograph on canvas. The works in this collection reflect the unique character and diversity of this artist.
