Cathy Dack-Pelter lives in the beautiful little community of Mabel Lake situated at the mouth of the Shuswap River in the North Okanagan of British Columbia . Her love of painting began at the tender age of five years old. When she attended playschool, she was seduced by an easel that was supplied with poster paper and pots of poster paints just waiting for her visual expression. Throughout the years she has tried her hand at graphite pencil; pen and ink; oil painting; and pottery. More recently she is exploring acrylic and watercolour painting.
