Catherine Obi Paintings
Catherine works mostly in Acrylics, mixed media and some water color. The majority of her work expresses a deep interest in spiritual figures, a curiosity of the divine, and capturing their etherial essence. She generally likes painting large scale pieces and often uses gold paint in many of her paintings which creates a decorative play on light.
She moved from the UK to the States for her career as a shoe designer, but spends most of her free time studying yoga and painting. She also loves painting her multi cultural family, important family events and celebrations, capturing the essence of love and togetherness. She is drawn to painting the family in their traditional African dress, the bold colorful patterns of their outfits give a vibrant and joyous feel to the paintings and reflects the celebrations of an extended multicultural family. She can be contacted if interested in commissioning her.

The images in this collection were all made at Mystic Seaport, The Museum of America and the Sea. I enjoy exploring areas with a strong historical component, as this gives an experience of how people lived and pursued their lives at another time. I was fortunate to visit at the time that the whaling ship Charles W Morgan was being renovated at the drydock. This ship was built in 1841 and is now restored and available to visit.

Candace Winter was born into a family of artists and has been creating art since she could hold a crayon. Her work has always been about bold color, texture and telling a visual story. As a teaching artist, she has visited many schools throughout Westchester making art papers with young students in a style similar to that of children’s book illustrator Eric Carle. Using this paper the children make incredible inspiring art. She takes all of these creations made by many hands and arranges them together whimsical murals. As a result of this process, there are always many bits and pieces of beautiful handmade papers left over. Seeing the passion from all of the young artists in these “scraps”, Candace could not bear to throw them away. It was all of these precious pieces that lead her to discover this new way to collage.
