Cat Mahin

Cat juxtaposes natural images with everyday objects in colorful abstractions that excite the imagination. “I start with a critter in mind and just let my imagination run. In some cases, I will magnify the bark of a tree, a leaf or twig and use this as my subject matter.  I actually don’t know how I get the ideas, but it all seems to fall into place. I use watercolor on Aquabord, a clay covered substrate that enhances the intensity of the colors." Many of her pieces contain personal memories, such as one Dali-like creation with her father’s pocket watch sharing space with a porcupine.

“I am confident in my talent. If the right people see it, they will find something of real value.  I love what I do.” For more information about Cat and her work please visit:
