Meet the Team! CathrynMeet Cathryn!
Cathryn is a Tennessee native from the small town of Huntland, with a huge population of just over 900! She moved to Huntsville after finishing cosmetology school in Nashville, and works full time as a hairstylist, where she makes art everyday. "Moving the hair in different directions to achieve a look or using color to make a statement is a lot like painting in that it is an instant gratification you get when you step back and say , hey I did that!"
From as early as she can remember she has always loved all forms of art. Growing up on a dairy farm there was art all round; from cows, barns and fields full of corn or cotton, it was always beautiful and full of inspiration. Great memories from her childhood were remembering as a kid learning how to sew on her grandmother's sewing machine and making pottery bowls with her aunt. For a while she was using those skills to making dog clothes for her new puppy!!
Painting is what she does to relax, getting lost in her work she can look down and it is hours later, before she knows it. With no formal training she is a true testament that everyone can produce art if it is in your heart!
She feels very grateful to have an opportunity to instruct at Pinot's Palette, loving to create and an another outlet to express her creativity to other people. She loves when people say "I can't paint" showing them after a class how well they did, art is what you make it and while it might not look like everyone elses painting, its your own unique interpretation, and that is what makes it beautiful!
