About

Catherine Pain My name is Catherine Pain and I love to draw and paint.

I design and publish greeting cards and was lucky enough to be chosen to receive a Silver Ticket at PG Live by Sarah and Paul Henderson of 3 Wishes who are The Retas 2015 Greeting Card Retailer of the Year!

    I mentioned at your exhibition in 3 horseshoes about another show on 29th June. Are you still ok to exhibit your work as I have contacted Mercedese and Vanessa for them to also exhibit and I am planning to bring along various dance teams in the afternoon. There will be acoustic music sessions during the day and I think Mercedese is arranging a Burlesque spot !! (should be interesting)..
    I have included this event into the May/June village news letter.
    thanks

    Catherine, I have seen a picture by you depicting “All creatures are moving forward with us and through us towards a common point of arrival, which is God”. (Quotation by Pope Francis)
    As I am preparing our 2018 calendar with the LOGO WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES but widening it to: THE WEB OF RELATIONSHIPS – THE COSMIC FAMILY – I would love to use your very lovely picture, if I may?

    I am a member of the congregation of Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of the Rosary. Each year I prepare a calendar to send as gift to all of our Benefactors.
