Drawing - Essential Techniques
Cate McCoy has been a Fayetteville resident since 1995 and raised two lovely daughters here.
After receiving her degree in Graphic Design, she opened her own decorative & faux painting business, Sensational Surfaces.
Her portfolio has a huge variety of hand-painted treatments from plaid floors to Baroque and tortoiseshell ceilings, Narnia room and murals,
rock n roll piano, clouded 90'L x 12'W ceiling with whimsical beam supports at Rogers Public Library Children's Department and
(faux) marble columns at Pinnacle Bank in Rogers.
Cate's work has been shown in several publications, including; At Home in Arkansas and Citiscapes.
Due to a back injury, she has retired the ladder and Sensational Surfaces has morphed into Cate McCoy Studio.
With over twenty years of painting experience working with various mediums, her favorites are; pencil, oil, cold wax and fabric.
