Instructor Bio: In 1975, Catherine became seriously interested in photography, winning many ribbons in various local and statewide events. In September 1993, was introduced to painting in oil. Her paintings are now exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, and she is represented in several galleries, restaurants and inns. A line of greeting cards, identified by the name “Artography”, carries photographic images of her paintings and photographs.

In 2008, Catherine moved to Manteo, North Carolina from Milford, Connecticut, where she was a member of the National League of American Pen Women, and a 5 year member of the Milford CT Fine Arts Council Board of Directors. She has traveled up and down the East Coast as well as to the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and South and Central Americas, to paint. In 2003, she brought to fruition and managed the Firehouse Art Gallery at Walnut Beach, Milford, Connecticut, which is still thriving as part of the Milford Arts council. During the summers of 1998 through 2008, she ran the Annual Block Island Art Festival, in Rhode Island.

Specializing in lighthouses, landscapes and seascapes, Catherine paints on location whenever possible. The feeling of the subject always comes through in her work. Private commissions, her specialty, include people, house, boat and plane portraits, pet portraits, murals, lighthouses, gardens, and spiritual/fantasy scenes. She has participated in several gallery exhibits on the Outer Banks.

September 2009 through December 2014, Catherine owned and operated the Gallery “Washed Ashore” in Manteo, on Roanoke Island, North Carolina, which featured Catherine’s paintings, prints, photography and cards.
