My mixed media work includes digital illustration with photography combined with the analog use of ink, pencil and paint mediums to create etherial abstract, landscapes, figures and portraits. Bold color, texture and elements of nature are used to connect, inspire and leave interpretation open to the viewer.
Cathy Stanfield has been drawing and painting since childhood and formally studied design and fine arts 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, France. 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, feminine beauty and a dream-like sense of intrigue and sensuality. Cathy now resides in the Pacific Northwest nestled in the Olympic Peninsula just outside of Sequim, WA.
