Catherine "Cathy" Holmes
Cathy was born in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan and is the daughter of David and Bonnie Holmes.
Cathy attended Sault Area High School (SAHS) and was very interested in English and Art. While attending she helped out in the school library, volunteered for the first time with Young Authors (a program to get kids into reading) as a storyteller/performer, was a part of 6 drama productions as an actress/stage help/co-writer (for one production), as well as co-starting a group for Creative Writing/Performing.
Cathy enjoyed working extra in the courses she liked best, which included English and Visual Imaging Technology (focused on desktop publishing/printing processes). These courses allowed her to work on various brochures, the school newsletter, playbills for the drama productions, and The Underground Railroad (a publication for Evening with the Arts through Sault Area High School). Cathy graduated from SAHS in 2000.
After high school, Cathy graduated from Northern Michigan University. In May 2006 she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art and Design with a concentration in Metal Craft.
Throughout her attendance at Sault Area High School and Northern Michigan University Cathy tried to use a marketing approach to enhance her education and her artwork.
Cathy has been very motivated since 2002 maintaining at least 2 part-time jobs, if not more, even while attending college. Admittedly not as active as she would like to be, she makes a point of donating her hair every year to Locks of Love, and attending The Pink Mile (an event, in the Sault, to raise awareness for breast cancer).
She loves working with people- providing quality, creativity, and cheer.
