A resident of Connecticut & Washington, DC for over twenty years Catherine now lives in Sonoma County in Northern California and is active in art markets around the country. She also has a summer studio built in 1908 in Stockbridge, MA (which has been used by 3 generations of artists in her family). Her hands always busy from an early age she grew up engaged in creating, using any material she could find and helping her dad in his studio. She was educated at Stanford University in California majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Art. She initially worked in the foreign manufacturing/design division of Mattel Toys in California until she moved to Greenwich, Connecticut and it was at that time that she was introduced to stone sculpting. In 2000 she switched her medium to bronze using the lost wax process and sand casting methods. Focused on both small and large commissioned pieces, she creates maquettes (plaster models) in her studio and has them enlarged, cast or fabricated and then installed on location. To enable more flexibility in customized pieces, Catherine has created what she calls her "Signature Maquette Series of Pieces." These small sculptures have been 3D scanned and can be enlarged to suit its commissioned location.
She has won top awards in many juried shows and her work is in numerous private collections nationwide. Her public art commissions include a cast sculpture at Constitution Hall, Washington D.C., the Joan Scarangello Foundation To Conquer Lung Cancer Annual Award Trophy and the signature sculpture on the set of the former CNN program NewsNight with Aaron Brown.
