Cathy, an award-winning artist, creates unique and one-of-a-kind silver, gold, mixed metal and vitreous enamel jewelry as well as enamel art displays and functional work.
“My passion is to express nature’s beauty, color, infinite variety and humor in my work. As for my artistic expressions, I enjoy the rich color, depth of transparency and technical process that vitreous enamel presents as well as the challenge of creative metalsmithing and stone setting. I also believe my background in water-media painting and nature photography influences my current direction.
