Cat 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 top model for world renowned international agency, Elite Model Management prompted a move to New York City and Paris, France where she launched a successful career. During these years she continued to develop her artistic exploration while maintaining a busy schedule 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 figurative and portrait work which reflects a flair for fashion, feminine beauty and a dream-like sense of intrigue and sensuality. Cat also enjoys experimentation with abstract expressionism, capturing the beauty of the land and seascapes of the Pacific Northwest through mixed mediums on wood and canvas. As a resident of the PNW, she resides in the Olympic Peninsula just outside of Sequim, WA.
