About

Hello and Welcome. I am a professional artist. My artistic career has been filled with design work, as well as devoting many years to my painting career. These days, even in my down time, I still find my self creating! I have been collaging, drawing, dabbling in jewelry design, I'm also sewing up a storm these days, and all sorts of crafting. I love to create heirloom trinket and treasures. All facets of Arts & Crafts interest me. I am a collector of treasures, vintage and new. I collect for inspiration, reperposing and decor...also collecting is an old habit from my stylist and set design days, always looking for something new, fresh, unusual, unique, antique, or needing a home...I am a mother hen creating, nesting, care giving, nurturing, raising and letting go...
xoxo,
Cat

My Bio

Well, my Art career has spanned a lifetime! I'll say it all began when following my Mom to Art class, age 3, when Mom's Yale professor encouraged me to partake! Oh, the smell of the Art room, the feel of the Paint, the creative energies in the room! It felt important and necessary. An Artist was born and created as Mom's Art teacher took me under her wing and began teaching me privately... Followed by years & years of lessons and studying in the fine Arts from drawing to ceramics, & even the theater Arts...studying studio Art at the College of St Rose in Albany, NY... Attending Art classes at SUNY Geneseo, SUNY Albany, Otis-Parsons, Los Angeles...Even an occasional Art class with Mom. Thanks Mom & Dad!
Forever a Student, Forever a Teacher. The cycle of Art and creation, a universal communication of Heart & Soul!
Wow, I have been selling my Original Paintings and Designs for a few decades now! Many Thousands of my Paintings, Prints, and Designs have been sold around the globe. I have Designed products for Disney Catalogs, Coca Cola Catalogs, I've Designed collectible dolls, doll clothing...I worked as a fashion Stylist and a set Designer from NY to CA...And I must say all of these collective experiences have truly shaped and Designed my Artistic style. My love for vintage, an extensive knowledge in 20th century fashion and decor, a passion for Art history, as well as an intrigue in the use of symbolism in Art & Design, also occupy my work!
My beautiful life now is the most impressive of all! I have the pleasure of living a simple, humble, loving and creative life with my soul-mate husband, his 2 children, & kitties in a quaint beach cottage in Southern California. A simple Artist's life. A created lifestyle. A creative life! Living the Dream!
follow your heart...follow your dreams...
