Beaudette, Catherine

b. 1958
Catherine Beaudette was born in Montréal, Québec and currently divides her time between Toronto, Ontario and Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland. Her practice stems from both places where she collects artifacts and specimens to form the basis of her drawings, paintings and installations.

Catherine received her MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and is currently associate professor at The Ontario College of Art and Design.  Catherine is the founder of Loop Gallery in Toronto’s Queen West Gallery District where she continues her involvement with the local art community.
