  Catherine Shapiro



Catherine Shapiro is a native Californian who has adopted Coral Springs as her new home.  Her journey as an artist began as an escape from the everyday stresses of life.  

However, it soon became much more than that! Through their creation, she realized the artist is actually inviting the viewer to see everything in a different “light.”

Catherine works in many different types of media, including pastel.  Acrylic is a personal favorite, because of its warmth, spontaneous nature and color. She has been fortunate to have sold several pieces over the years from her home based studio, CMS Creations Gallery. 

In October 2012, Catherine decided to place her Gallery on Facebook.  In an even greater effort to share her work with others, she became a proud member of the Coral Springs Artist Guild.

By March 2013, two of Catherine’s paintings appeared at the Coral Springs Festival of the Arts.

This webpage is an important step in the sharing process.  Watch out for more special events, shows and exhibits ... the Coral Springs Museum show and our special Library exhibit are coming up fast!

If you wish to purchase one of Catherine’s Creations, or to see the artist in person ... please contact her as soon as possible. Viewing hours are by appointment only; call the number below, text or write before your visit.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Coral Springs Festival of the Arts Demonstration, Finished painting

I have always been fascinated by certain concepts. These ideas invite us to see ourselves and others in a different way. Faith, the belief in something Greater than ourselves, is only one of those ideals. Because of this, my work includes themes from many faith traditions. This synagogue is located in San Francisco.


You can use my Facebook Page to participate in the Special Project that began with this painting. It will include works inspired by Divine places from all over the world!
