ECLECTIC ARTIST PAINTING MOMENTS WITH PASSION
Featured Artist, Cathy Suiter
Cathy showed an interest in art early in life and was always encouraged by her parents. She studied art in high school and afterwards with a tutor, Robert Anderson, who had retired from teaching art at Tulane University and settled in the Greenbrier Valley of WV. Following a brief period of time, Cathy continued her education after moving to MD, receiving an Associates in Communication Arts with a focus on fine art. After a divorce and another move to northern Virginia, she finished her Bachelors in Business and Marketing with her focus being to provide a new life in the Piedmont area. During her years in the corporate world, she continued to paint as often as possible. After 20 years of long commutes and little time for her love for art, she took a job in her town of Warrenton and spent as much free time as possible painting and seeking contacts in the local art scene.
Cathy is now a contributing member of Seeking Stars Art. She shows yearly at The Piedmont Regional Art Show in The Plains, where she has won two awards. She has displayed her art in several storefronts in Middleburg and has also shown at the AIM Gallery in Middleburg. She is currently showing at the Franklin Park Arts Center in Purcellville and will have several pieces in the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) art gallery in Richmond, VA throughout the holiday season. She will also be showing several pieces at Coldwell Banker in Leesburg from December to February 2019.
