About the Artist
Catherine Daley’s art is inspired by the environment, by people and by concepts, and from these sources of inspiration, her artworks usually come to her in fragmented dreams. Catherine describes one of her works, Aurora III, as “inspired by nature, alluding to the Aurora Borealis’ curtain of light while loosely referencing a riverine shape. It plays with the ideas of musical scales or chimes, juxtaposed to elements in nature: water, wind, light and ice.”
Catherine Daley is an interdisciplinary artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She works in sculpture, photography, and painting. After working as a photojournalist for 10 years in Sacramento, she turned her creative eye to sculpture. After graduating from Sonoma State University in 2013, the University purchased her artwork in 2015 for permanent display on campus. While the impetus for her artwork is centered on the environment, Daley also creates works that are deeply personal and relate to current events. A member of Pacific Rim Sculptors, most recently she was selected for the ZonaMaco MÉXICO, a curated, digital exhibition for the local chapter of the International Sculpture Center, in February, 2018, and for the Forms and Sequences show at the Siskiyou Arts Museum, August 11–October 6, 2018. Her works have been featured at the Napa Art Walk from 2015–2017 and at the Sculpture Garden at Paradise Ridge Winery. When not making art, Daley enjoys teaching an art class at Sonoma Academy in Santa Rosa.
