The Coffee Gallery is please to present the lovely oil paintings of fine artist Catherine Yu.
Catherine Yu, an up and coming Taiwanese American artist, has won numerous art contests and competitions in her homeland Taiwan as well as in the United States.
During her student years at UC Irvine, she was featured in many group shows, as well as having her solo show on campus. She then attended UCLA for a Masters degree in urban planning. Since graduation in 2004, she has been working full-time as an urban planner.
Although art is not her current full-time career, she continues to cultivate her art by taking classes, workshops, and association with other artists. In recent years, she has studied with California artists Steve Criqui, Kevin Appel, Steve Metzger, and Tom Brown. She is a permanent member of Gallery SoHo, a co-op gallery located in Pomona. She also exhibits her paintings twice annually with the Taiwanese American Association of Art. In May 2008, her painting was published by City of Los Angeles. In March 2010, she was invited to exhibit her art in her native country, Taiwan.
Her inspiration comes from American landscape, her travels to different countries, as well as daily simple happenings. She hopes her art can evoke awareness to the daily blessings that we so often take for granted.
