THE ARTIST

Being the daughter of a world-renowned naval architect and living in a seaside community, much of Catherine’s inspiration is shaped by the environment she was raised in. Her father bestowed a passion for his craft and from an early age an indelible impression on Catherine’s own artistic passions was made. Much of her childhood was spent creating art and experiencing the landscapes that surrounded her—whether it was wondering the beaches near home, basking in the rich hues of a Nantucket summer sunset, or quietly drawing her feet through Damariscotta Lake in Maine.

Catherine graduated cum laude with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. During this time she had the distinct honor of studying abroad at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brugge, Belgium (Academie Brugge DKO). Her time there was formative as she traveled extensively absorbing the magnificent art and history of eastern Europe. However, it was her immersion in the Dutch art culture and the dramatic light and composition of works by Rembrandt and Vermeer that most influenced her. Like these masters Catherine strives to apply the same sensitivities in her subjects.

Catherine has exhibited over 100 national and international shows and her work is exhibited in galleries throughout New England.
