Cathy Stanfield has been drawing and painting since childhood and formally studied fine arts and Interior Design at the Design Institute of San Diego. Although born and raised in California, her years working in the fashion industry as a professional model for international legacy agency, Elite Model Management prompted a move to New York City and Paris. During these years she furthered her artistic exploration while maintaining a successful career being featured in fashion magazines, catalogs and commercial advertising campaigns worldwide. The influence those years had in shaping Cathy's creative style are prominent in her work which reflects a flair for fashion and and beauty in her portrait and figurative work. Her abstracts are inspired by natural elements of land and seascapes that evoke mood, imagination and fluidity. Cathy now resides in the Pacific Northwest nestled in the Olympic Peninsula of Sequim, WA.
Living the in PNW and raised in San Diego, California, I have a deep appreciation for the awe inspiring beauty, vastness and energy of the ocean. It's power seems infinite and eternal. My 'SeaRenity" collection is a series of original mixed media abstract expressionism. Each piece is created from a deep love and gratitude for the extraordinary relationship we share with the sea. Given the importance of the ocean to our planet, it is vital that we take action to protect it. We can all do our part.
Excited to be showcasing artwork with 29 Olympic Peninsula artists. The exhibit highlights a connection to the region and is rooted in the peninsula’s spectacular forests, mountains, rivers and lakes.
