February and March Guest Artist: Fabric Artist Cathe Sowin-Puckett
Cathe credits her father, a carpenter and craftsman, for teaching her the value of hard work and a love of the outdoors. Her passion for nature and for creating with natural materials began during her childhood in central Wisconsin. She began her art career by designing and selling hand dyed wearable silk art, but soon began a career in Las Vegas working in costume design for Cirque du Soleil and creating fabric artwork for the Disney and Carnival cruise lines. During this period, Cathe began expanding into more sculptural pieces. All of Cathe’s art is inspired by nature, and she enjoys creating and celebrating beauty using the natural materials of cloth, paper, and wood that God has provided. Cathe is a former member of Sea Grape Gallery, and we are happy to welcome her back as a Guest Artist.
