    Fine Art

    Sparkling with seemingly endless energy, Cathy has a depth that reaches far into the soul of things. She sees, seemingly without looking, she knows, seemingly without listening, and she moves through our realm with unprecedented intuitive grace. Cathy’s art visualises a world seen with a different set of eyes, the eyes of the soul – seeing beyond matter or form, depicting in aural colours and earthly tones. Living an ordinary life in an extraordinary way, Cathy can shine the brightest light unto all of us, through her magical and spiritual excursions into the world of creative expression. Like no other, Cathy Battistessa can make you jump at the sudden realisation of who you really are.”   Bart Karski, Head of Ursula Von Rydingsvard’s Studio (New York).
