Cathy Stewart

Cathy Stewart, nee Curran, was born in Comox, grew up in Port Alberni, and currently resides in Qualicum Beach, BC. She is married to William Stewart and the mother of two sons, Alistair and James.

Cathy spent over thirty years working as a psychiatric nurse before picking up a paintbrush. In 2003 she began a dedicated interest in oil painting, studying with accomplished artists Gabby Morrison, Ron Hedricks, and Lloyd Major. Her subject matter is diverse, but is inspired by Mother Nature and her work in the Canadian Arctic and around the world. More recently, Cathy has focused on the West Coast of Vancouver Island as well as Haida Gwaii totem poles. Cathy has shown in exhibitions of the Stave Falls Artist Group, and in 2011 was the solo artist at Rollin Art Centre in Port Alberni. Her work is on display at the Sandspit Inn Gallery in Haida Gwai and the Reflecting Spirit Galleries in Ucluelet and Tofino.
