37: Catherine Cassidy
I am such a fan of painter Catherine Cassidy and I am so excited that I had the opportunity to chat with her! Growing up, Catherine was always drawing and painting, she remembers doing her art forever In the end, self-doubt becomes your friend. If you don’t have it, you’re missing something. Good artists are not driven by confidence, they are driven by absolute excitement Catherine can be a bit of a loner and this sometimes shows itself while looking at other people’s work She does painting for fun and doesn’t want to take the fun out of it by doing art prizes. What she’s doing makes her free as a bird and doesn’t want it contained in any way We also discussed her views about being a female artist in a male-dominated industry and some tips about juggling art and family The post 37: Catherine Cassidy appeared first on Felicity O'Connor.
