Cathryn, one of our student artists, has a heart for quirky, vintage, and posh. She enjoys capturing a bit of nostalgia and "youthful whimsy" in her pieces and has aspirations to illustrate children's literature! About her artistic journey she writes, "We can lose and find ourselves in different experiences. Work with the tools you have, and eventually, the piece will come together. It takes patience and allowance for things to turn out a different way than you anticipated. But in the end, the final piece holds your journey, with every lost and found moment encapsulated within."
