Catherine Mamola is an American realist artist whose works are held in private collections worldwide.

After graduating from college with a Bachelor of Science degree, she worked as the Director of Marketing for a New York City based company when she started her rigorous training in art.  Her figure drawing classes at the Art Students League  and her countless workshops with world-renowned artists led her to her interest in traditional realism.  In 2006, she pursued her passion for art full-time with extensive studies including classes and workshops at the Grand Central Academy of Art and Chelsea Classical Studio while simultaneously raising her three sons.  It was a demanding schedule with immeasurable benefits.

The art teacher who had the most profound influence on her landscape work is John Phillip Osborne.  John taught her about the infinite light effects in nature and all its subtle nuances and how to portray this on canvas. John Phillip Osborne was a student of Arthur Maynard who studied with Frank Vincent Dumond.  Dumond taught for many years at the Art Students League in New York and instructed  such revered artists as Georgia O’Keefe, Norman Rockwell, Frank Mason and Everett Raymond Kinstler.

Catherine spares no effort in creating works that are  both sublime and portray a melancholic reverie of her subject. She strives to evoke a mood that is both naturalistic and poetic.
