Caterina create mixed media paintings, assemblage and art books. She incorporates authentic antique ephemera and papers in her work and hand stitches fabrics to create unique marks of intention. Her pieces are metaphors for relationship. She uses layers of paper, paint and rough textures, to convey the changes that all relationships endure. The various printed papers represent conversations taking place within the work. She often finds inspiration in nature which is one of her reoccurring themes. Other themes include, freedom, flight, sewing and gardening.
