My name is Catherine, but most people just call me Cathy. I've been drawing since I was able to hold a crayon in my hand! However, my art didn't flourish until almost 20 years ago. I was diagnosed with Schizoaffective Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, and a few others. I am on many medications, and I regularly see a therapist, a psychiatrist, and a regular physical. I quickly found that relaxing with some art helps calm me down a bit. Just like those adult therapy coloring books. I like to make my own designs though. It helps me feel in control. If this online gallery really takes off for me, I plan on maybe starting to design my own coloring pages to share with all of you, so that I can help spread this wonderful, safe coping mechanisms to people who struggle with battles similar to mine. And for those who just want to relax and have a little fun! I live on disability, which really doesn't pay much, so I am hoping this place helps me fund my art supply addiction! :) Anyway, check out my stuff. If you see something like you like, great! I am also open to suggestions. Have an idea for me? Message me! Have a great day, everybody!
