Cathi is aware how important art is in her life. It is challenging with everyday life to devote as much time as we should to our art, but it does help to belong to a group of like minded artists and friends. Sensing their spirits toiling away in their studios will encourage you, if only for yourself, to take small  bits of time and also create. Cathi works in several mediums, staying mainly in the studio now. She enjoys mixed media, print making and watercolor. Actually any painting materials will do!!


Family, friends and animals are important in her heart, as they have provided subjects to paint! Nature gives her so much joy, because it has a multitude of visuals in color, shape, value & solitude. Your soul is satisfied, fulfilled & blessed when your art is appreciated.
