Hi! My name is Catherine. Welcome to Aesthetic Alterations, a visual diary of enamored living guided by a passion for art, travel, textiles, and the beautifully made object.
Born in Germany and raised in Kentucky, I have lived and traveled all over the United States and the world, from Western Europe to India. Academically trained in art history, I set aside university teaching to build a career as a fine-art photographer and to establish a successful business as a developmental editor mentoring writers of fiction and nonfiction. Currently I reside in New York City.
To discover more about my photography, visit my fine-art website here.
Aesthetic Alterations is a space for sharing the pieces, events, food, and moments of life that arrest me. And through this sharing I’ve been fortunate to cultivate friendships with incredible women around the world.
I welcome you and hope you will join in.
