Cathy began her career as a young artist in Venice, CA where her encaustic work showed on trendy Abbot Kinney Blvd. and charmed collectors such as Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.
After moving to New York in 2005, Cathy continued to exhibit her work in the Enormous Tiny Art Show at the Nahcotta Gallery in Portsmouth, NH and in galleries in New York, Virginia Beach and Asheville, NC. In 2011, she co-founded The Firefly Gallery in Northport to feature the work of local Long Island Artists. In 2012, The Lamantia Gallery unveiled her encaustic paintings at New York Art Expo, delighting her collectors with larger-scale work to add to the smaller pieces already available.
For the past 8 seasons, Cathy has been the featured artist for the “Modern Vintage” Elements line of handbags sold internationally, by Boulder, Colorado company, Sherpani. She also designs cards and stationary for companies such as Graphique de France and American Greetings.
Cathy currently lives in the artsy, mountain town of Asheville, NC, where she paints her colorful “stories in wax" to a soundtrack of her boyfriend's music and children's voices.
