Cathy Weyerhaeuser '75
My art tends to be whimsical scenes and images drawing from nature with an illustrative quality to it. I have been inspired by American folk art and work at creating a flat composition that reads as a scene as well as multiple stories. Imbedded in my work is an obsession with patterns and designs. I have traveled widely for inspiration, both to expand my imagination and to appreciate what is right in front of me. I especially like to work in gouache and ink.
I have a BA in geology, a BS in education and have studied at the College of Visual Arts and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I have written and illustrated several non-fiction earth science books with Mountain Press Publishing. I live and create in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
