Art Mewveau by Nancy Whelan
2018 Cat’N Around Catskill – Cat #24
Sponsored by: Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty
Description: Inspired by the design moment Art Nouveau – Gilded Age pieces like vases, lamps, wallpaper, furniture and jewelry. Flowing florals highlighted as gold work over a background shaded to look like glass on enamels.
About the Artist: I am a graphic designer and decorative artist who loves to create works in various mediums – I’m happiest with a brush in hand, covered in paint. My career has been primarily focused on graphic design and photography, but I also worked at Louis Paul Jonas Studios as a fine art detail painter of wildlife sculptures. My craft hobbies include creating hand-painted furniture, beaded jewelry and historical costumes. My avocation in life is rescuing cats, and my husband and I run a non-profit cat rescue. This is my sixth year participating in Cat ’n Around Catskill, it’s a wonderful creative outlet for me and all my proceeds go toward our rescue.
