When people ask me what my favorite color is, I tell them all of them. I mean really, who can choose?
I am a mixed media artist and illustrator specializing in a variety of techniques including illustrating, art journaling, stamping and painting to name a few. I started Catherine Scanlon Designs in 2004 to enjoy the freedom of working from home when my son was young. With a background as a watercolor artist, I quickly found out that it was difficult to paint with a baby in the house so crafting and scrapbooking became my creative outlet. In 2005 I began working as a Creative Artist for EK Success Brands, which introduced me to a whole new world. The process of combining fine art with paper crafts and scrapbooking quickly resonated with me and I found that I loved the results of mixing various techniques and mediums together to create unique and beautiful creations. My journey has taken me on quite an amazing tour of the art and craft world and I hope to continue on for many more years!
I live in Maine with my husband, our 16 year old son and our ancient dog in a family compound of sorts. It’s lovely to walk down the road 2 minutes to have coffee with my Mum anytime of the day. I spend my days creating art, designing new illustrations for my rubber stamps licensed by Art Gone Wild and taking care of my home and family.
If I didn’t have art to help me express myself, I don’t think I would know who I am.
