Cathy Stewart, nee Curran, was born in Comox and grew up in Port Alberni. She is wife to William Stewart and the mother of two sons, Alistair and James. She currently resides in Qualicum Beach, British Columbia.
Cathy spent over thirty years working as a psychiatric nurse in the mental health and addiction field before picking up a paintbrush. In 2003 she began a dedicated interest in oil painting, studying with and being encouraged by accomplished artists Gabby Morrison, Ron Hedricks, Lloyd Major and Merv Brandel.
Cathy has shown in exhibitions of the Stave Falls Artist Group, The Old School House in Qualicum Beach, Aggassiz, Chilliwack Cultural Center and Harrison Hot Springs. In April 2011 she was the solo artist at Rollin Art Centre in Port Alberni. She was also fortunate to be a part of the Artists for an Oil Free Coast exhibition shown in several British Columbia locations in 2012 and 2013. Her work is on display at the Haida House in Haida Gwaii and Reflecting Spirit Gallery in Ucluelet.
Cathy will do commissions.
