  • "Best framers in the city, I’ve used and been their client for 25+ years. No job too small or large. ‘Can’t do’ is NOT in their vocabulary. It’s an absolute pleasure doing business with them."

  • "Esprit Decor delivers perfectly professional service. We have been using them for years for various framing needs and the end product always look wonderful. Most recently they produced a “shadow box” for us with a picture of a grand opening event, some ribbon from the event, along with a pair of scissors and a silver plate with the event details. I appreciate being able to bring in a vague idea and letting them create works of art."

They listened to my concerns and understood my goals with the projects I brought them, providing much needed advice and suggestions. Pat, Robert and the rest of your crew, I can’t thank you enough for your beautiful work and amazing service for our fundraiser last week. I will definitely be back!"

“By observing the details in everyday surroundings, I find a wealth of ideas: from the smallest of sweet peas on my garden trellis, and the rhythm of color in the Northland wayside, to the soaring San Francisco Peaks in Northern Arizona.”

Capturing the colors of nature in both sunshine and shadows, Catherine pulls the viewer into the very soul of the painting, as she blends negative brushwork – using the white of the paper rather than white paint – with glazed transparent watercolors for vibrant representations of landscapes, florals and still life paintings in light and shadow.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Catherine has lived most of her adult life in Arizona. Art has been an important part of her life since age 10 when her mother presented her with her first set of oil paints. Raising a family, with a career as a Registered Nurse, took precedence until a newfound love for watercolor brought her back to the studio. Small classes and workshops by talented artists have influenced her unique style of painting. She works in her home studio and paints from still life compositions and her own photographs, composing them into fresh and novel arrangements.
