We sat across the table from each other, the old house-turned-restaurant an ideal setting for talking art and life and personal history. Cate’s life is fascinating, her work inspiring. We bonded over a mutual love for structure and grids, and incorporating architectural concepts into painting (for her) and portraiture (from me). Cate and her husband recently moved from the West Coast to East Coast, and she wanted to update her online presence with head shots and portraits that reflected her new surroundings. She chose a nearby tree farm with a grand old farmhouse as a preferred backdrop, and it was perfect.
Enjoy the story,
