Cathleen Strickland


Artist profile:

Growing up with a pencil in her hand under the doting tutelage of her father, Cathleen dreamed of one day being formally trained, so when the last of her four children entered school, she enrolled at Portfolio Center in Atlanta. For the next few years, she relentlessly absorbed and wrought through her mind and hands the bones of the solid mentoring from Atlanta’s finest artists. She found she’s a storyteller, a documenter, with the need to express herself with the written word (often from her journals), layers, line, color and texture to describe her subject with the passion she strives to express.
