Cathy Faughnan

I have always been a visual person and studied design, architecture and urban planning.  I began painting seriously in 2017 and enjoy the challenge of capturing the essence of an object, animal or scene. I love color and the life it brings to the painting.  I strive to transform everyday objects and scenes bringing them to life in a modern impressionistic style. 

Recently I have been exploring mixed media in my pieces.  Additionally, I have been exploring a different style depicting animals using layers of paint, scratching into the surface to reveal the freely drawn images. 

I am the mother of 3 young adults and live with my husband and dogs in Lafayette, Colorado.  I enjoy hiking, skiing, tennis and strive to be a positive influence in my community.
