COZ CREATIONS ART

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.
