MY PAINTINGS…. My landscapes, floral and still life paintings are inspired by my native Appalachian mountains. The beauty of the eastern mountains and its rich heritage are a constant source of joy and delight. I strive to share this pleasure in my paintings. My favorite medium is watercolor. I love the sight of the rich colors mingling on the wet paper. I also paint in acrylic, oil pastel and occasionally pen and ink. I may paint the same subject several times, but each painting is different and original.

ABOUT THE ARTIST….. Catherine has always worked with art but painting did not become a passion until 1989 while taking a watercolor class. Art then became a very important part of her life. She did extensive self study and studied under many nationally known artists before beginning to show her work. In 1994 her work began appearing in local shows and now can be found in juried shows and galleries across the region. She is a member of Blackberry Creek Artists with whom she regularly shows.
