A Cate Family Tradition

Art has been a special part of the Cate family for over a century.

I grew up admiring the watercolor paintings of my great-grandmother, Anne Palmer Cate. My grandfather, William Cate, worked on intricate, technical drawings. Some of my earliest memories are hanging out underneath the drafting table while my dad, Martin Cate, was carving one of his many linoleum block prints.

I studied art in college and worked in museums before taking a job as a high school art teacher. 

When I became a mom, my need to share this family tradition emerged and I began to paint in oils and acrylics almost every day. Now that I have relocated to New York City, I am studying at the Art Students League and I have a studio on the Upper West Side. I look forward to many opportunities to share my love of painting and the outdoors.
