About Catherine Scanlon, Mixed Media Artist and Teacher

Catherine Scanlon | ArtistCatherine Scanlon is an artist and illustrator specializing in mixed media and art journaling. She started Catherine Scanlon Designs in 2004 so she could enjoy the freedom of working from home when her son was young. With a background as a watercolor artist, she found out quickly that it was difficult to paint with a baby in the house. She started scrapbooking as a way to preserve memories and realized she had a talent for the art.

Up until late 2012, Catherine designed scrapbooking pages for EK Success Brands and has had her designs on display in the biggest craft stores, including A.C. Moore and Joann Fabrics. She is also the author of two books, Sewing on Paper and Art from the Heart. Today, Catherine focuses on her own designs and teaching others how to create art and beautiful crafts as well as consulting manufacturers in the arts and crafts industry. She has taught over 100 art and craft classes at My Creative Classroom since 2007 and opened her own on-line classroom website as well as a physical teaching studio in 2014. For more about her classes, please visit her classroom website: Merrymeeting Art House.

Catherine earned a graphic design degree from Central Maine Technical College and was awarded first place for her watercolor on plastic piece at the Art in the Park in Bath, Maine in 2004. She’s married with one son, snorts when she laughs and has never colored her hair.
