My paintings have been featured in numerous design publications such as Style Magazine Australia, Artisticmoods, Surrounding Magazine, Wilson Art's, The Statement Blog, Note To Self, and Shelterrific. One of my paintings was selected for the cover of Sasee Magazine. I've also done a commission for a Grammy-winning singer/songwriter. Thanks for looking!

    At a very young age I became fascinated with colors and with the emotional impact of various color combinations. I had the benefit of being the sixth of six daughters; in many respects they were my mentors. In our family, Italian traditions—family, food, religion—were fundamental. When I was 10 years old, a family friend, an artist, recognized my talent and enrolled me in a class at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. After that seminal experience, I continued to draw and in high school I practiced drawing furniture pieces and chairs with fabric patterns. The Italian Renaissance became my favorite art history period and I often incorporated objects and themes from this period into my work. In college, I studied pottery, figure drawing and art history. After marrying, I had three sons, the youngest of whom was diagnosed with autism. Painting for me became a necessary therapy. What started as a part-time escape became a full-time profession and I am grateful every day to be able to do what I love. My studio is in my home. I have sold paintings all over the world and have exhibited in galleries and shows throughout the Northeast.

    I love this artist's work, which I discovered because someone I'm friends with on Facebook follows her. The print I ordered came quickly, and I liked it so much that I decided to exchange it for the larger size, which was also handled easily. High marks for both quality and ease of transaction. Now I'm hoping to save my pennies for one of her original paintings.

    ts~Catherine's art is unique, rich, whimsical and elegant at the same time...I love your work! As so many others do too:)

    A happy owner of this stunning original painting :) I absolutely LOVE it. Flowing delicate lines with gorgeous intricate patterns. Very fine smooth texture. The colors are bold and vibrant. The flowing movement of this piece conveys serenity and elegance. A BEAUTIFUL piece with many layers of art to relish. I appreciate the careful packaging, communication, and complimentary gift. Catherine, I thank you so much :) P.S I love how you captured the shiny black baby grand piano in your artwork.
