 A Note From Catherine McClung

Born in Toronto, Canada, Catherine McClung makes her home and studio in
West Michigan. The area's woods, waters and meadows are the necessary
inspiration for her artwork. To nature lovers and to china lovers,

  Catherine's watercolor paintings of birds in their natural habitat emphasis the delicate balance of nature. The vibrant colors of flowers and birds emerge from her paintings, creating a blend of design and information. Numerous paintings have been released as limited edition prints. Some of Catherine's projects include migratory bird posters commissioned by the Department of Natural Resources of seven states. In 2002, she represented Michigan with an ornament for the White House Christmas tree, and she also recreated this for HGTV's "White House Artisans". Perhaps her proudest achievement has been her selection for the world's most prestigious Birds In Art exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin.

Each day Catherine enjoys spending time walking with nature, looking for new subjects to paint. She feels very blessed to to have a career that includes her two passions, nature and painting.
