Born in Claresholm, Alberta, Cathy Long has her roots in the rural southern Alberta land. Her art reflects a spectrum of subjects and they are as multi-faceted as her influences. Drawing from the favorites of the big west skies, the people, the history, to foothills, mountains, and flowers.Cathy sold her first painting at the age of twelve.
In the mid seventies after painting many portraits and commissions, she attended Vancouver's British Columbia Emily Carr and Languara Art Universities.

On her return to Alberta she taught drawing and painting to children and adults privately and in three counties. She also attended the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and graduated with Honors as a Commercial Signmaker. She owned a modest sign shop in the Nisku/Leduc Industrial Park.She hand lettered many signs including truck and industrial tanks as well as show card and sprayed illuminated signs..She was an accomplished airbrush artist and had many commissions on vehicles. This type of work is too heavy for her now.
During her years in the heart of Alberta's oil patch, Cathy organized and managed a large fundraising project for the Leduc/Devon Oilfield Museum. These images can be viewed in her gallery section and only purchased direct by contacting her.( pre-printed Limited Editions and or larger sizes than listed here.) This project has raised just under $10,000 dollars for the Museum.

Her paintings are enjoyed in many homes, corporate offices, a hospital, a museum and two school divisions as well as many government locations. Many have been chosen as presentation gifts. These have gone to several officials including the Former Alberta Premier the Honorable Ralph Klein and the then Minister of Energy the Honorable Pat Conrad-Black and MP Albert Klapstien. A portrait of Chief Crowfoot was also a presentation gift to the Blackfoot Siksika First Nation. During her years at the Alberta Business Research Newspaper she featured a column called Art Panache that featured interviews with great artists such as Loren Chabot and Pierre August Renoir's grandson.
