About Catherine...

Catherine Thomas Kaplan, of Concord, NH, holds a BA in art history (Wellesley College, 1989), an MA in art education (Goddard College, 1998), and an Ed.M. in arts in education (Harvard University, 2013). She has completed courses in scientific illustration, textile design and watercolor painting and works primarily in pen and ink with colored pencil, and watercolor. She has recently embarked on coursework to earn a certificate in Natural Science Illustration from RISD. Each year for the past 17 years, Catherine has designed calendars and note cards illustrated with flowers, fruits and vegetables (see Gallery for images).


By day, Catherine works as a program assistant for Project KEY (Kindergarten Enrichment Year) in the Concord (NH) School District. Catherine is grateful to her husband, Dan, for his support of her artistic endeavors, and to her children, Miranda (20) and Henry (18), who are her two biggest fans.
