About Cathy Faughnan
I have always been a visual person and studied design, architecture and urban planning. I began painting seriously in 2017 and enjoy the challenge of capturing the essence of an object, animal or scene. I love color and the life it brings to the painting. I strive to transform everyday objects and scenes and bring them to life in a modern impressionistic style. I try to let the paint "do what it wants to" and am always surprised how my vision for the piece translates onto the canvas.
I am the mother of 3 young adults and live with my husband and dog in Lafayette, Colorado. I strive to be a positive influence in our community and have served on then boards of the WOW! Children's Museum, The Boulder Valley YMCA and the Arts Hub.
I have shown my work at The Collective Community Art Center, East Simpson Coffee & Morning Glory Cafe in Lafayette, Boulder Arts and Crafts Gallery & Louisville First Friday Art Walk in various locations. I am a member of the East Boulder County Artist Association (EBCA) and exhibit my work in the EBCA Studio Tour. My work is currently on Display at Particulars Gallery in Lafayette.
