About the Artisan

Hello and welcome! I am Cathy Lee, creator/owner of Gratitude Studios. I am also known as marruliaminilikuluk (the dear mother of the twins). I'm a recently retired Nunavut educator and educational leader and I took up painting after a near fatal accident in some hurricane force winds in Pangnirtung, Nunavut. The accident caused a number of major fractures to my right arm (yes, I'm right handed!), torn ligaments and muscles, and the ensuing pain condition, CRPS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome as well as PTSD. Painting was and continues to be a major part of the healing process in which I find a sense of gratitude and calm. I draw inspiration from the northern Canadian landscapes that I call home (Nunavut, my adopted home, and the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, my birth home). My goal is to create and share that sense of gratitude and calm through fine art and wearable art of those alluring spaces of land, sea and sky. May they bring you gratitude and calm also. Be Well. Cathy
