… Cathy Arvonio?

Cathy Arvonio loves to create and re-create a picture or scene into art. “When I put oil paint onto canvas, it is my desire to create this beauty as I see it, which moves me to paint in a realistic way. I always find beauty in everything that I paint. There is beauty all around us and in every one of us and it is my inspiration to see it, feel it, and to paint it!” From that, I take and put it all onto my canvas.”

One of Cathy’s favorite artist’s quotes is, “Art does not reproduce what we see. It makes us see!” -Paul Klee.

Cathy has been oil painting since 2001 with the oil painting group of Palette Pals in Forest City, PA. This group was founded, instructed, and mentored by artist and art teacher, Paul Roginski.

Cathy also creates in other styles including impressionism and abstract. She loves to use a palette knife to produce texture into some of her works. Her art includes; landscapes, seascapes, still life, and abstract. She is always learning and experimenting with other types of painting and different mediums.

Cathy grew up in Northeastern PA. She always loved the arts and was inspired to start pencil sketching at a young age. She eventually moved on to her true love, oil painting! Cathy graduated from Lakeland Junior/Senior High School. Subsequently, she attended and graduated from Brandywine College of Widener University with an A.S. in Legal Administration/Paralegal Studies. She currently lives with her husband Peter in Mayfield, PA. Cathy has two (2) children.
