Catherine is the perfect performance artist - intense, intelligent, funny, with a poetic imagination and a keen visual and musical sensitivity. It remarkable that one person can do all this and still be so nice. I will be doing three videos of Catherine and putting them on You Tube and before too long they will be in the gallery in a higher resolution .

The videos are a pale imitation of the complexity of Catherine's work when experienced in person. I only wish you could have been there. I felt privleged.
