What a lovely, magical painting this is. It has an arresting quality it's very hard not to look at. Catherine does such beautiful work. She has an excellent eye and captures the look and feel of the era her women inhabit.

About

Vintage inspired paintings with a modern edge.

I’ve always been fascinated with people and objects of the past. When I was small I watched a lot of old black and white movies and was mesmerized by the style of the women in the long white gloves and fancy hats. I would get into my mothers old photos and secretly take out a few to keep for myself. A few years ago I was g iven all the family photos. Beautiful vintage photos of great great grandparents and distant relatives, many people I’ve never seen or heard of. One of my favorite items was a pair of yearbooks from the 1940’s. I was so inspired by them that I did a large painting showcasing some of the characters and putting their names beneath them. I felt that I was somehow bringing them to life by giving importance and recognition to each individual. I loved doing it so much that I began to paint all kinds of vintage inspired art. That’s when I decided to share them and “My Mysterious Past” …my Etsy site, was born.
