Also trained as a fine artist, her metal and textile designs have been featured in exhibitions in Canada, France, Italy, China and the United States. Her passion for fusing art and science has led her to design space art projects for microgravity environments, and develop wearable technology garments for fashion shows. Her passion for collaboration between artists and scientists inspired her to create the first Space Art program in Canada for the Canadian Space Society, and her research on the subject was accepted to the International Astronautical Congress, in Valencia Spain.
As Editor-In-Chief for Calgary Bride until 2017, Catherine directed numerous high-end photo shoots and produced hundreds of fashion editorials for some of Canada’s most widely distributed bridal magazines, “Luxe”, “Calgary Bridal Guide”, and “Confetti”, found on most major newsstands. In 2016, Catherine co-founded Natural Talent Alliance Inc. with Matt Laprairie, an organization which promotes creative collaboration, and produces educational and professional development opportunities for the talent industry. One of these events is the Calgary Raw Talks for creative professionals. As a team, NTA strives to protect the rights of artists and encourage real and raw conversations in order to improve the talent industry.Contact Catherine
