Catalina McIsaac is an accomplished multi-faceted artist. Her academic training includes honors Bachelors of Art degree from UCLA, and a Master of Fine Art degree from Otis Art Institute. Her creative focus at UCLA was painting, with independent study under Richard Diebenkorn. At Otis Art Institute her focus was printmaking, multimedia sculpture and photography.

At present, Catalina chooses to focus on painting, returning to her first love of oil paint on canvas. She is pleased to be represented by Art Brut 117 Atelier.
My art is melodious visual music, regardless of medium. I strive to reflect the primal essence of reconciliation of all parts into perfect oneness.
