Announcement   I create whimsical original designed clip art, paintings and fine art featuring animals and people.

I am a full time artist and I love it!.

I have five wonderful children and three grandchildren.

I studied traditional drawing and painting for years but found that elements of whimsy began to slip into my art in 2001. My brain did not accept this, wanting to study the masters and pursue a fine art path. However, my fingers... ten against 1, kept producing whimisical fine and folk art. Recently I began creating clip art, I call it designer clip art because each piece is designed by hand first then digitalized.

My full name is Catherine Darling Hostetter, but I sign my art with Catherine Darling (Cathy Darling) which is my maiden name. I feel it is more fitting for my whimisical creations, and my artistic nature was inherited from my greatgrandfather who excelled in stone sculptures and my mother who was an artist.

I live in Salt Lake City where I have lived all my life with the exception of a couple of jaunts to Colorado and Arizona.

I have been selling online since 2001 with 100% positive feedback at various online venues. Please feel confident that I offer great customer service. Here are the Galleries that represent my artwork:

Catherine is the best artist I dealt with so far, she is so professional, so sweet and so easy to work with, and her work is great. I love the piece she did for me, she captured what I wanted exactly the way I wanted it. I can't recommend her enough but she really knows her stuff.

About

Everything Has a Season

Catherine Darling Hostetter
Artist

I have been passionate about art for as long as I can remember. Throughout my life I felt a need to put my own spin on whatever I did; and in elementary school I was known to do my math in color. As I grew older and associated with more artistic people, I felt a compelling urge to do assignments with my own twist. I enjoy painting subject matter that could be described as realism with my little twist, (or maybe it’s just my twisted brain!) and I have come to call my work whimsical realism... except when it's not realism, then it's just whimsical and maybe a little twisted.


I consider myself to be self taught. I attended the University of Utah for one year, until marriage took me away to live in Colorado, but eventually I returned to my home state Utah. I have 5 children and consider raising them as an education in itself. Especially with a divorce about half way through. However, we coped and being a single mom has led me to my full time art career. That's been a very rewarding thing.

Currently I have added the lovely privilege of being able to tend my baby granddaughter and a handicapped grandson. Although it does cut into my painting time, I love this special time in my life. Tis a season! New update, after nearly 3 years of spending time with my darling granddaughter Lily Rain, she is now moving to Portland with her mama. This 'Nama will miss her!

I call my studio Pure Art, because Catherine means 'pure'. Now, with tending the grandkids, in order to be more productive, I have had to form a mini studio in my bedroom. I have a full blown studio that takes up half the basement, but due to all the wonderful and not very childproof things there, it is hard to take little people down there and get any work done!

I consider all things to have a spiritual impact on us, and am loving the journey I am on.

I am represented by Local Colors of Utah Gallery in Salt Lake City, and Paisley Pomegranate, Salt Lake City and Park City, UT
