Cathy Phares Art
Art is an expression of my thoughts, dreams, curiosity, and creativity.
I was lucky enough to be born into an artistic home. My father Ron Bowen, is a well known Birmingham Photographer. What many don't know, is that he is a painter as well. I have fond memories of playing in the garden on Cobb Lane while he was painting away in the gallery. We spent many nights at the kitchen table, as I practiced sketching techniques. I visited art galleries and shows at a very young age. My love of art was cultivated by him and for that, I am eternally grateful.
Like all Moms, my life became very busy with family. Now that my children are grown, I began painting again. All of my family are very supportive of my artistic journey.
While I'm mostly a "Self Taught" artist, I've attended many classes and workshops in the Birmingham Area. I'm a member of the Mountain Brook Art Association and participate in art shows in the Southeast. I find great joy in commissioned paintings. I work with my clients to develop an emotional and personal piece. I feel my journey through Art has only begun.
