About Cathy

Page

 

My current work has evolved out of my love of drawing and the feel of a pen or pencil in my hand. I enjoy the crisp, clean lines of a pen and the unique challenges this medium presents – creating interest, playing with light and shadows and creating contrast. Currently I’m using Faber Castell Artist Pens.

I strive to create a sense of feeling or atmosphere in my drawings, which I hope the viewer comes away with. My main subject is nature and I draw from photos I’ve taken while out hiking or exploring the countryside and beyond.

Studies

Various classes/workshops in painting and drawing: Loyalist College Summer School of Art, Belleville, ON; Fleming College Summer School of Art, Haliburton, ON; Kingston School of Art, Kingston, ON.
