Hi my name's Cathi Newlin. . .
I've been drawing and creating for most of my life.
As a teen, I painted Christmas scenes on store windows for extra money. I studied drawing, printmaking, sculpture and ceramic arts at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, Ca, American River College in Sacramento, Ca. and Southern Utah University. I have worked as a set carpenter and painter in community and dinner theater and have a disturbing portfolio of punk flyer and album cover art to my name (hoo boy!).
Though a native Californian whose family emigrated to the state as part of the ill-fated Donner Party, I have spent much of the last 15 years or so in Utah and rural Missouri. In late November, 2005 I, along with my husband Jeff, a couple of Boxers, some cats and assorted farm critters moved from our home in Mercer, Missouri and relocated to Angels Camp, Ca to build a home here in the Sierra foothills..
Before leaving Missouri, I did an apprenticeship with Missouri potter Darlene Beverlin and have been taking some time to develop my own aesthetic and voice as well as concentrate on the construction of our new home.
Besides art and general construction, I have been actively involved in purebred dog (boxer) rescue and education for many years, and donate much of my time, and some of my web skills and art to rescues around the country. I provide web services and website help to breed rescues and animal welfare groups and maintain a website focusing attention on boxer dogs in California shelters.
Take a look at examples of my work below. . .these pieces and similar items are available for purchase in the Quyle Kilns Showroom!
