About

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 children’s clothing for another decade.

I graduated cum laude 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 N.Y.C. where I learned the fashion design skills I use in my own creating, and love to teach to others. Today I teach visual art and fashion to children, teens and adults at Danforth Art School at Framingham State University. This site shows examples of my varied interests and skills.
