New Smyrna Beach, Florida
Cathy Berse is a 25-year resident of Florida and a signature member of East coast Plein Air. Cathy attended the University of Wisconsin, University of Tennessee and Milwaukee Area Technical College. In years past she has worked as a graphic designer, teacher and muralist.
Cathy has a great love and respect for nature, and by painting it, she feels she can share this love with others. Pissarro, one of Cathy’s favorite impressionist once said, “The task of an artist is to seek with our own senses the elements of what surrounds us.” This quote sums it up for Cathy and she feels that painting En Plein Air is the only way to capture the true light and feel for this beautiful place
we live in.
