Cathy is one of the founders of The Art District Gallery and the Urban Sketchers Waterloo Region. She was also one of the core artists in Hespeler’s A Day and A Night – Art Meets Music.
Cathy finds inspiration for her paintings in many different places. Her subjects range from landscape to still life and some ideas come from her imagination. Most paintings are vibrant and full of colour with the paint applied in such a way so the viewer can see the underpainting and brush strokes.
Cathy works with acrylic paint and sketches using ink and watercolours. She paints outside whenever possible and experiments with different colour palettes.
Involvement in the local arts community continues with memberships at The Button Factory, Kitchener Waterloo Society of Artists and Central Ontario Arts Association. Cathy also participates in group, solo and juried shows.
‘When I have an emotional response to a subject matter I want to capture that feeling in my painting. I want the viewer to feel something – to also have a connection with it as I did.’
