Born and raised in Watertown, New York. College at Nazareth in Rochester.
I taught art in local Watertown schools for 37 years, during which time I married and raised a family. I’m now an owner of Paddock Art & Antiques, a grandmother and more involved in my art and the art world than I ever was.
I work primarily in ceramics because I love the quality of clay that allows amazing textural surfaces.my pieces typically have natural textures, such as leaves, bark or stone impressed in the clay.
My work can be viewed at Paddock Art & Antiques in Watertown , The Bay House Artisans ,or on my Facebook page, Cathie Ellsworth Pottery.
