Born in 1951 Cathy didn't discover any sort of artistic ability until her mid twenties when she applied for a teaching position in Orillia in the public school system. Her love of languages had led her into teaching French up until that time, when a regular classroom position presented itself. She was informed she could have the job if she would be willing to teach art on rotary to the senior grades. Not having any experience in that subject, the school board offered to send her to Toronto that summer and enrolled her
in some art classes at the Toronto School of Art, and that is where she found she had both an interest in and an aptitude for drawing and painting.
From hobbyist to professional artist was always Cathy's goal. Along the way, Cathy sought out instruction with some highly accomplished painters, but primarily she is self taught. Her style is always evolving as she experiments with diverse processes.
A prolific oil painter, Cathy paints approximately 100 paintings per year and operates her own commercial gallery in Midland, Ontario.
