I am Catherine Byrne, a visual artist, clothing designer, teacher, and art and fashion enthusiast.
I have an extensive background in the fashion industry, having worked in costuming, in product development and production coordinating in N.Y.C. for Calvin Klein, Isaac Mizrahi and Ralph Lauren for over a decade, then having designed and sold my own lines of women’s and childrens clothing for another decade.
I graduated with honors from Boston University with a B.F.A. degree in Painting, and continue to make art when I can. I later earned a A.A.S. Degree in Fashion Design from Parson’s School of Design in NYC to learn all the amazing hands-on trade skills that I continue to expand on in my own creating, and love to teach to others. Today I work as Program Coordinator at Danforth Art School at Framingham State University and also teach Fashion Design & Illustration and Drawing classes.
This site shows the wide array of my different interests and skills.
