Catherine Lucas - Oil, Egg Tempera
Born into a traveling military family, Catherine experienced awe-inspiring art from many different cultures as she grew up. This motivated her to start drawing, and the sacredness of life she experienced in these cultures continues to inform her work. Catherine’s artistic education includes a BFA from Hofstra University (NY) and an MFA from the New York Academy of Art, Graduate School of Figurative Art (NYC). After completing her program at New York Academy of Art, she continued her education through long-term study with Anthony Ryder at the Ryder Studio School in Santa Fe, focusing on portraits and figure drawing. Catherine exhibits her work in Florida, New York, and New Mexico.
