Catherine Eaton Skinner

"I am an artist, a painter, and a sculptor. I draw from my past as a Northwest native, growing up within the old growth firs and cedars, learning the names of the flora and fauna east and west of our mountains. I became a biological illustrator after graduating from Stanford University and returned to the Northwest to live and farm on San Juan Island for twenty years. Now I live and work in two cities, Seattle and Santa Fe." -Catherine Eaton Skinner
