ABOUT THE ARTIST
Catherine Putzier has been studying art for almost 60 years. She now considers herself a process artist as she finds many different ways to express herself through encaustic painting with beeswax, alcohol inks and watercolor. Encaustic paintings are on display at the Jericho Town Hall in Jericho, VT through December 2018.
She started studying art in elementary school in Vermont with Flora Zimmerman and Ruth Frazure. Over the years she has made several trips to the major museums of Washington DC, New York City, Sante Fe, New Mexico, Sedona Arizona, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti and Montreal Canada. Formal training was at the University of Vermont for classes in basic drawing, design and color relationships. She also took instruction in pastel classes in Burlington, Vermont from Jeannean Lunne of New York. She attended workshops at Brandywine, Pennsylvania with The Artist Magazine and in Vermont, a watercolor workshop with Tom Lynch. In Florida she studied pastels with Elsia Marini and Barbara Colter Baldwin. She is a past president of the West Volusia Artist Inc. in Deland, Florida. She now works out of her studio space in Jericho VT. She occasionally teaches an alcohol ink class at The Milton Artists Guild.
Catherine is represented by The Milton Artists Guild in Milton, Vermont, The Old Mill Gallery and Gift Shop in Jericho VT and the Full Circle Artisans Gallery in Cornish, Maine.
