"Schooling Shiners" by Cathey December
Native Louisiana artist, Cathey December, has been printing limited edition etchings for over 40 years. She is known for merging her two passions; art and nature. Her entire life she has lived on the bayou and has spent much of her time watching wildlife of the Louisiana marshes. In 1973 she learned the technique of printmaking and began creating limited edition, original, hand-colored etchings. Her work has received statewide recognition and has also been featured in numerous movies, public and private collections, both in the United States and abroad. December is constantly amazed by the endless inspiration that she finds in natural wildlife and the beauty of the Gulf Coast Region.
