Cat Mitchell Roy originally came to Whistler on a road trip from Qubec. She fell in love with the area, and a visit that was supposed to last two weeks has now been ongoing since 2009. The mountains feed the soul and inspire Cat to be creative. Before moving to Whistler, she obtained a bachelor's degree at Bishop's University with a major in Environmental Studies and a minor in Fine Arts. Whistler is an ideal place for these two passions.
Cat has had a love for the arts since she was a toddler. Art has become her form of meditation and escape. With much of her recent work containing fine lines, detail and pattern, she gets lost in a piece for hours at a time. Her preferred mediums are painting and ink drawing, with surrealist, art nouveau and comic book art influences.
