Cathleen N.Artist and Jerry's Shopper

Cathleen Nardo has had a varied career in the arts and in business. After graduating from Denison University, she made her way to NYC to pursue a career in the theatre. There, she worked Off Broadway, in regional theatres (including Paper Mill Playhouse’s production of The Desert Song), as a featured singer aboard cruise ships and in NYC cabarets. In 1990 she left performing and joined a team producing theme park attractions, corporate meetings and product launches. This work led her to a long and happy tenure in the online advertising business at Grey Interactive, a division of Grey Advertising. Cathleen now lives and works in New Jersey. The purchase of a historic home in Plainfield unleashed her “inner gardener” and untapped love of nature. A class at the NY Botanical Garden in Botanical illustration initiated her new path as a visual artist.

Featured My Story

Cathleen N. | Artist | Jerry's Shopper

"My mother was an artist, so we were always creating in my childhood home, making everything from ornate homemade Valentines to tie dyed clothing. I always loved it; art was a daily part of our lives. However, I spent my early years pursuing singing, acting and dancing, eventually professionally in NYC. As many of us in that profession do, I changed careers in my forties to a job with a steady income in the corporate world. In search of a new creative outlet, I took a class in botanical illustration and have been a passionate visual artist ever since. Having traded NYC for suburban New Jersey, I was lucky enough to discover Jerry’s, both the storefront and their online presence. Especially when trying new media, it’s wonderful to be able to see and touch the materials. I love exploring the aisles and shelves of Jerry’s and always discover something new I want to try. Their salespeople are knowledgeable and helpful. On the other hand, since I still work full time, the convenience of ordering what I need online is invaluable. Their selection is wonderful and the prices are fair. In two years I will retire and become a full time artist again, although, this time, as a painter. I’m sure I will continue to be inspired by what I find at Jerry’s."
