Cathy Pavia – 258 Mira Mar Avenue

One of my first memories is of my mother sitting with me drawing. I would ask her endlessly, “Mommy, draw this for me,” and she would, tirelessly. My dad would drive me to the Cleveland Museum of Art every Saturday. It became my second home. I learned that art was a big part of life for me and it always would be.

After my education, a B.F.A from the Cleveland Institute of Art and an M.F.A. from California State University at Fullerton, art is still mysterious. Creating with watercolor, gouache, inks, pencils, and acrylics surprises and energizes me constantly.

As an illustrator for over 25 years, I’ve worked with publishers, advertising, magazines and private clientele. I have over twenty books in print. Some of my clients include Doubleday, McGraw Hill, Psychology Today, Los Angeles Times, Parents Magazine, Scholastic Inc., 20th Century Fox, Sesame Street, and many more.

Teaching and lecturing at colleges, elementary and high schools has given me great pleasure, as well. I hope you enjoy viewing my art as much as I enjoy creating it!
