Introduction It is said that a cat has 9 lives. I'm on my 3rd. For me college was a toss-up between art & science; I chose the latter. My 1st life was a decade as a genetic counselor seeing patients in high-risk prenatal & cancer clinics. My 2nd life a hybrid of genetic clinics by day, painting by night, traveling to art shows on weekends. Trapped by the golden handcuffs of healthcare & a steady paycheck, my emotional state swung from burn-out to fatigue to resentment to boredom. It was time to go. My 3rd life as a full-time artist had begun. I’m a painter & can often be found sketching ideas on yellow sticky notes, cocktail napkins, & the edges of grocery lists. Ideas come & they come often. Design is everywhere. Inspiration isn't far behind. I am guilty of doing too many things at once. Personality tests describe me as pioneering, creative, visionary, & a self-starter. Oh, & tenacious. I was born in the Chinese Year of the Rabbit - 1963 - & for those curious, my parents didn't name me after an animal. "Cat" is short for Catherine. Thanks for visiting my blog where I'll provide a peek into my life as an artist, sources of inspiration, previews of my artwork.
