I believe that art should make you dream. My goal is not to reproduce what can be seen with the eyes; rather it is to open the door to inner truths, to enhance the life of the spirit, the life of the soul. Such art goes beyond the boundaries of language, culture, and material reality just as music does. That transcendent and generous quality which acknowledges our interconnectedness is what I try to achieve when I bring impulse to form.
Catherine¬ís abstracts, both in painting and in monotypes, reflect her fascination with the mystical and archetypal. Her earlier art training is in landscape and still life, but now works strictly with abstraction. Although primarily a painter, she is also an award winning printmaker. Her work is in private and corporate collections throughout the US and Europe. Other accomplishments include being the featured artists of the 2005 Parade of Homes, and having her work published in the January edition of American Art Collector.
Catherine holds a Bachelor of Arts degree With Distinction in Philosophy from the University of Colorado.
