Catherine Clancy was born in Detroit, MI. After hitting a plateau, Catherine put her art supplies away for ten years. Her daughter's whimsical drawings reignited her desire to make art. Since picking up a paintbrush two years ago, the act of painting brings much joy and a meditative peace into her life. She studied at the Art Students' League of Denver, Studio 2nd Street, and Watts Atelier. Catherine currently lives and works in Carlsbad, California with her husband, daughter, two cats, and fish.
