Catherine Fasciato
Catherine Fasciato was born in Hong Kong while it was still a British Colony and lived there until she was nine when she moved to England, the rugged Yorkshire countryside with its bleak weather and wild moorlands.  There she developed her love of drawing animals, mostly horses whilst on long walks in the country.  She returned to Hong Kong for four years and then came to California, making it her home in 1976. Her love of the ocean stems from her childhood living in Hong Kong and swimming in the sea as well as long journeys aboard ocean liners with nothing but the sea and sky to look at as her parents loved to travel and her mother preferred going by sea rather then by air. Her mother's family were for generations in the shipping business in the Philippines .  Today she can often be found painting the California coast at Pacifica, Marin Headlands, Carmel and Mendocino.
She is a signature member of American Impressionist Society, California Plein Air Painters and Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters, artist member of California Art Club, associate member of  American Society of Marine Painters and Oil Painters of America.
Her works have been described as dramatic and capturing the mood or essence of whatever subject she paints, be it landscape, seascape, skyscape, portrait or still life.  She loves to capture the spirit of the elements.
She is represented by Benicia Plein Air Gallery in Benica, California, Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek, California and is a member of Arts Benicia,, Benicia Plein Air Painters, California Art Club (Artist Member),  American Impressionist Society (Signature Member), Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters (Signature Member), California Plein Air Painters (Signature Member), American Society of Marine Painters (Associate Member) and Oil Painters of America (Associate Member).
