Bio and Exhibitions

The patterns and colors of the world’s diverse cultures – seen since childhood through extensive world travel – have influenced Cathy Drennan’s life and her art.  Born in Abilene, Texas, she was five when her father joined the Foreign Service and they moved to Lebanon.  She also lived with her family in Mexico, Iran and the Philippines, and visited them as an adult in such exotic places as Cyprus, Brazil, and Iceland.  Experiencing great art and culture in foreign countries made a profound impression on her creative spirit.

Cathy received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Texas in Arlington.  She followed a career path as a graphic designer and artist.  Cathy lived many years in Washington, D.C. and Virginia, where her work was exhibited in various venues.  In 2006 she moved back to Texas and began concentrating more on her personal artwork.  

She currently lives and works in Dallas. She and her husband Cohn Drennan opened a contemporary art gallery - Cohn Drennan Contemporary - in the Dallas' design district on Dragon Street.
