Cathy was born in London, Ontario. She works in a representational style in traditional oils on canvas. An avid gardener, her work often includes some aspect of nature, and her love of colour and texture is very apparent in her work.
Her numerous awards include Best in Show, several public choice and juried awards. The County of Oxford commissioned a painting for a gift to Taiwan. Two of her paintings were accepted into Toronto’s Arts and Letters Club juried exhibition ‘Next’ in 2015. They received over 700 entries and only accepted 45.
She is a member of the Ontario Society of Artists, The Woodstock Art Gallery and was a member of their Art Gallery Advisory Committee. She is a past Chairperson of The Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre and a member of Oxford Creative Connections.
