Cate Kauffman works in oils and pastels. She is currently deep in a series of bird paintings using photos she has taken out her back window. She recently finished a series of vegetables from her garden done in pastels. In the summer, as weather permits, she can often be found in parks and along roadways and waterways doing plein air work.
She had a good deal of her art training in high school and follows it up now with at least workshop annually to help refine her skills. She has recently begun teaching pastels.
