About the Artists:
Christie Hicks moved to the Hudson Valley in late 2014 when her husband Kevin retired from the army to enjoy the tranquility of the area and the beauty of the mountains. She studied graphic design and fine arts at Columbia-Greene Community College in Hudson. The creative outlet these classes provided inspired her to submit a design for Cat’n Around Catskill. Christie looks forward to participating again this year in this amazing fundraiser for Catskill and working as both artist and event coordinator for the Cairo Bears Community Art Project.
Karen Robinson: After a fulfilling 25-year career in higher education, Karen has begun her next career in the artistic world.
