Catherine attended Somerset High School where she received the Betty Crocker award and graduated 10th in her class. After attending Wellsley College Catherine earned her Doctor of Philosophy/Psychology at the University of Colorado, and was licensed to practice as a psychologist in the state of New Yrok.
Catherine worked at Gannett Psychological Services, Cornell University, and at Psychological Services, Ithaca College before beginning her own private practice in Ithaca, New York. While Catherine's first love was psychology, she was also an avid artist.
Catherine was full of creative energy and sold her stamped and collaged greeting cards, journals and artwork through Handwork, Ithaca's Cooperative Craft Store. Catherine was a member of Handwork for 13 years and she will be missed. Catherine loved to express herself through her art, and describes her process as follows:
"Much of my work is about transformation -- both my work as a psychologist and as an artist. Collage is a particularly good example of valuing things that others see as inconsequential, damaged or worthless. Simply by virtue of seeing things in a new light, it is possible to create something of beauty. The process of creating art by combining handmade papers, stamped images, colors and textures fascinates me. I firmly believe that there is a creative force in each one of us. It has been an exciting journey exploring my own creativity. I encourage you to nurture yours."
Some of Catherine's work is still available at Handwork and any proceeds from the sale of her work will be donated to the Tompkins County SPCA.
