At the age of 16, Catharine A Deever left her home in the US to study for a year as an exchange student in Germany. It was in Germany that she gained appreciation of photography – and began studying it.
Returning to America to graduate with a BA degree in foreign languages and a Masters degree in Communication Arts, Catharine received more formalized instruction in Theatre (set design, lighting and costume construction) - along with oratory / forensic communications and debate.
After graduation, she became a teacher. Her career evolved with community projects into:
* corporate training
* non-profit management and advocacy
* directing, filming and editing training films
Catharine’s artwork has been heavily influenced by the diversity of the cultures in which she worked and lived . . . and her drive, molded by a community-caring family, is solely focused on benefitting the people her artwork serves.
