Catherine Daniels, Chicago Artist
I am an oil painter for the most part but have dabbled in acrylic and watercolor. I am also a classical and jazz pianist, so I am thrilled to become a member of the collective. Additionally, I am married and have three wonderful children. I also am on the Board of Wolcott School, which is only a few blocks from the FSC!
Commission a project, and I will work with you to provide any style painting you'd like. I also have a collection of artwork already drawn (no pun intended) out of my brain and set to canvas. Many are available for purchase through this site. I've studied painting formally at the Evanston Art Center in Evanston, Illinois.
My artwork is quite eclectic, but I'm interested in exploring color dynamics through various subjects, whether it be complementary, one color in all its tones and hues, or creating the most interesting placement of color to create the desired mood.
I don't have a typical background if there is such a thing. I'm a classically trained musician, as well as jazz picked up later, I'm a some-time writer, and I was a commercial banker for ten years. I live in Chicago with my husband and three children. Three dogs also became a part of our lives one of whom created an installation painting with my oil paints and her paws throughout our house.
