IntroductionYou may think event painting is the latest fad to hit the Wedding Market Pinterest boards, magazines and tiktok trends but it has a deeper history within our human nature than we give it credit for.
From the music, to the lighting, to the outfit you wear, showing up to celebrate life and love undoubtedly resonates through generations time and time again.
Just ask Renoir, Picasso, or Monet.
Celebrations make life worth living.
When you hire Cat, you hire a translator to speak to all things celebrated. She enters the conversation between her and the fleeting moment that only exists between batting eyelashes and whispered breaths. This conversation is translated through brush strokes and pigment and isn’t entirely understood until what is on the canvas is singing the melody of that very moment in time and humming the harmony between your life and your love.
These unexplainable moments are what you’ll want to embrace forever!
The Wedding IndustryCelebrations make life worth living and Cat knows her way around a party, behind the scenes that is! Cat has been on almost every side of event production and understands the amount of love and attention that goes into every detail of planning an event. The amount of love and attention that deserves to be immortalized in a work of art. When she discovered event painting it was like someone delivered her perfect job. To paint a scene as it unfolds, to capture the laughter, conversation, dance and love. For Cat, this is truly the greatest honor.
SpecializationWith a degree in The Fine Arts, Cat specialized in En Plein Air painting, painting from life. If she’s not at an event you’ll often find her painting in streets of Brooklyn, the beaches of Long Island, or in her garden capturing the light and the color that exists for only a moment like so many artist did before her.
Cat also makes her own paints from flowers, stones, clays, and pigments.
