A Dynamic Collective of Local Artists

A Dynamic Collective of Local Artists


Cathy Pascoe

I learned to draw using graphite pencil on paper. In 2005, I began using coloured pencils. At the same time, I began to broaden my interests, by moving away from portraiture to other subjects. My subject matter is varied.  What is consistent is that I am fascinated by light, translucence and shadow. 

Cathy has her Bachelor of Arts degree in French and German from the University of Toronto, and her Bachelor of Education. She taught all grades of elementary school in three different school boards in Ontario, Canada, for 30 years. As a student at the University of Toronto, she apprenticed with Canadian master printmaker David Blackwood for four years to learn the process of etching using copper plates. 

She began working in coloured pencil after her retirement from teaching, and is a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America. Her art work has been exhibited at Silicon W Gallery in Kitchener, Quest Art Gallery in Midland, the Centre for International Governance Innovation in Waterloo, and other local venues in Kitchener and Waterloo. Her work has been displayed on the illuminated bulletin boards in Times Square in New York City, as well as in Birmingham and London, England. She is currently represented by the Waterloo UpTown Gallery in Waterloo Town Square.

Cathy's work has been published by Artists' Network in Strokes of Genius 5, in several Ann Kullberg books and in her Color Magazine, United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society's "Talking Point" magazine, Colored Pencil Magazine, Talent Next Door, and Colored Pencil Student Magazine. Her children's artwork portfolio has won her placements as a drawing instructor for both children and adults at several art galleries in Southern Ontario.
