Cathy Goodale is a dedicated, persistent, and educated artist whose style reflects her individuality. If you pay attention, art transcends all parts of life and makes the ordinary things in life a painting. Her career has been filled with painting, teaching and learning. The demand for excellence, painting in oil and watercolor, continues to drive all of her endeavors and her imagination pushes her to paint past her "artistic safe places".
Growing up in Denver, Colorado, with an early introduction to art classics through her grandmother was instrumental in leading Cathy to Stephens College in Missouri and to a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Northern Colorado. She continued her art training at Denver University, studying commercial art under William Sanderson.
The opportunity to study with the best has been a gift. She has studied with Charles Reid, Richard Schmid, Burt Silverman, Carolyn Anderson and Zolton Szabo, to name a few master artists.
The opportunities of travel and teaching workshops in different cultures such as Russia, Mexico, Africa, Spain, France, Ireland and Costa Rica will always be one of her greatest learning experiences.
Cathy’s Galleries include Columbine Gallery in Loveland, Colorado, The Art Estate, Fort Collins, Colorado and Estes Cultural Arts Gallery in Estes Park, Colorado.
