From my early days as a potter in Upstate New York to today, creativity has always played a pivotal role in my personal and business pursuits. After a successful 30 year career in both Landscape Design and Interior Decorating, I began my journey into the fluid arts as a way of releasing my creative juices. Having studied many contemporary artists, I started developing my own style of “less is more” using a combination of existing and personally developed techniques. From “The No Bra Zone” (a euphemism for the free flow of design, color, and shape), I began teaching and sharing my techniques with those that desire to similarly release their own creative spirit. I am so honored to share in your journey.

In Cathleen's classes you will learn canvas prep, pouring recipes and everything you need to know to pour the perfect Swipes.  The class breakdown is as follows - 

“Inspiration is a wonderful gift to share”
