After watching the commercial development of her childhood playgrounds – forests, fields, and streams – Cathy realized that the natural open spaces around us are in peril. As a result, her goal is to capture nature, before it is forever lost. Cathy paints her journeys as she explores places that are unknown, unseen, or forgotten. She has recorded nature at its finest in parks, refuges, swamps, beaches, and farms, including the historic USNA Dairy Farm.
Cathy’s work has been exhibited in many venues in Maryland and New York, and her artwork hangs in homes and offices throughout the US. Her studio is located in Historic Savage Mill in Savage, MD. Cathy is also a member of several art leagues. She lives with her husband, Richard, and canine friend, Lucy, in Gambrills, MD.
Change of the landscape is almost always forever. Clearing forests, paving in asphalt, and filling the earth with concrete occur all around us, every day. We are losing the natural beauty of our planet earth.
In my paintings, I record journeys I take with nature, on foot and from my kayak. I invite viewers to share in the simple visual pleasures that nature freely gives us. With each journey, I discover new colors, feelings, and light.
Through my paintings, I try to express the peace and comfort that exist in nature, so that others may experience it as well. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I love creating it.
