Meet Cathy Penton

I live in a tiny little 1880’s railway cottage in a small town on a ¼ acre block in Qld Australia. I have two beautiful hazel eyed children, Kirstie 19 and Andrew 16 and wife to my highschool sweetheart. As a child I grew up on a dairy farm and from a very early age I had a love for art especially painting and drawing…. After finishing school I couldn’t afford to do a commercial art course so I went to secretarial school and worked in that field till I had my children. Over the last 13 years I have been able to live my dream of combining being a stay at home mum with creating and designing for a living. Firstly, through catalogues, a web site, to owning a retail shop and now back home again in my little atelier creating once more. Cathy Penton Atelier is an extension of who I am, my love for interior design, photography, jewelry design, blogging, beautiful sayings and words and the simple details of life. {Joy is not in things; it is in us…..} After traveling to France and Italy in 2010, my view of the world changed so much. Every detail just seemed a little bit more beautiful and their passion for the simple details and love for life was evident. {Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy} I have been extremely blessed to have my home photographed for my favourite magazine, written projects for several craft and lifestyle magazines and so many more fun projects in my future.
