About

 

Catherine’s photography strives to reveal the beauty in the universality, even mundanity of our human built structures and our modern lives to elevate disregarded settings and experiences, allowing grace and, dare I say, grandeur to escape. Expanding the liminal spaces and experiences with minimally processed photographs so as to invite an elastic sense of knowing has always been exciting and challenging for Catherine. Undertaking definitive series supports her immersion in totality - physically and emotionally, unearthing nuanced divergences and parallelisms. Her photographs are purely digital, blending the immediacy digital offers with the ability to capture deliberately. Catherine has made Phoenix, Arizona her home since 2007.
