Although Cathe Physioc has worked with and directed some of the top professional photographers in Los Angeles since 1982, she didn’t actually pick up a camera herself seriously until she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2008. It was love at first click. Her passion for the outdoors and travel, her keen design eye and artistic talent, her love of art and photography combined to evolve into the works in these series.
These images have been chosen from her portfolio because they have the key elements of good design. The elements that make a great painting, that make any really good piece of art are visual harmony and composition. Balance and value are key. Contrast adds impact. This is especially true for photography. Those are the very reasons these images are so appealing.
“My timeline goes something like this... In my twenties I was an award-winning fine artist and illustrator. In my thirties I was a working mom and designer. In my forties I added ‘art director’ to my resume. In my fifties I was an illustrator/designer/manufacturer. Then, I added photography to my list of passions. Now… I have opened a studio and gallery where my work and the art and artifacts I love can be shared with you. - Cathe Physioc
