Catherine Cates started taking photographs, creating art, and writing poetry while growing up in Salt Lake City, Utah. She currently lives in Las Vegas, NV. She hopes to bring the unexpected and nostalgic to life through her art; creating images that make the viewer want to take a deeper look and stay awhile. More of Catherine’s photography and art can be viewed on her website at http://catcat.es and some of her poetry can be found in the December 2014, Vol.1 No. 7 issue of Verse-Virtual.com.
