Cathleen was born and raised in the beautiful Miramichi region of New Brunswick Canada where her interest in art began early in childhood with the love of watching her father's paintings come to life.
"I can't imagine a home without art! It was the love of my childhood and has continued to be throughout my life......studying art in colleges in California and North Carolina in my younger years, then continuing the study through books, video, museum visits and working with other artists I continue to grow. It's a never ending education."
Today you could find Cathleen anywhere in the Miramichi river valley with a plein air kit drawing or painting in the open air or even in her car. Familiar with Oils, Pastels, Watercolors and Pen & Ink, she chooses her medium at random, loving the challenge of being able to convey the emotional appeal of any particular place through her signature mark making.
Past President of the local art group *Miramichi Art Core* (2019-2021), she has exhibited her work in group shows throughout the area since 2007. She has exhibited at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton NB for their member show in 2014, Harrison House Gallery in St John NB (now closed) and Bay View Gallery in Bathurst NB. She has painted in many plein air festivals sponsored by the Miramichi Art Core in the Miramichi area. She is presently Artist in Residence for Wilson's Point Historic Site.
