Cathy studied art and photography at St Helens College of Art and Design from 1983 to 1985 and has completed many portrait, landscape and wildlife commissions for her clients.
She took a break from art to bring up her three children and work as a Digital Marketing Manager and Graphic Designer.
Sadly in 2014 her eldest son Zachary was killed in a car crash as he left work in Clipsham, Rutland, where he worked as a talented chef. To help Cathy cope with the loss of Zachary, she has returned to her love of painting, illustration and digital illustration.
Since 2015 Cathy has been freelancing as a Digital Marketing Manager and Graphic Designer, graduated from the Open University with a BSc in 2019, designs websites for clients, helps run a family retail business in memory of Zachary and illustrates her own range of greeting cards and gift wrap.
