Catharine A. Deever formalized her life-long involvement in Visual Arts when she launched her company “River Dee Designs”, January 2018 – and she filed for her trademark with the US Patent and Trademark Office. Born to a Methodist minister and an elementary school teacher, Catharine benefitted by meeting and learning from experts around the world. At the age 16, Catharine left the US to study for a year as an exchange student in Germany. It was in Germany that she began studying photography. She returned to America to earn a BA degree in foreign languages and an MA in Communication Arts. While in college, she worked in the Advertising Dept of Sears in Topeka. After graduation, she became a teacher. Her career filled with jobs in: * corporate training * government administration * non-profit management and advocacy * directing, filming and editing training films Now, a digital artist, Catharine creates new images from foundation photographs that she has taken personally – or from photographs taken by the talented photographers in her family. Catharine’s varied artworks reflect the diversity of cultures in which she’s worked and lived . . . and her drive is solely focused on benefitting the people her artwork serves.
