Currently a resident of Raleigh, NC, by way of Tillery, NC, Cathy has created her own space in which she comfortably sits – Photography to Art.  In 2011, Reflections by Cathy Foreman was created and she hasn’t looked back.

To her credit, Cathy is a published creative who has shown her work in both solo and group exhibitions as well as graced the covers of two magazines; Blaque Canvas and 919 Magazine. Currently, she is preparing for an exhibit at the Halle Cultural Arts Center in Apex, NC for February.

Family, travel and music are the sum of what makes Cathy tick. It just so happens that all of these things power her drive and determination to succeed. Cathy is a mother to one son, Johnathan, and the daughter of Mary Foreman, who are both very close to her. You will find that she loves to share her travel adventures with her mother and you book a session with her, you will get to meet her mother and be welcomed into the fold.
