Art Within Nature

Cathee vanRossem-St.Clair is a miniaturist who has earned national and international recognition for her paintings on eggshells. One of her painted eggs, commissioned by The White House, is now in the National Archives. She is also an award-winning poet and storyteller, an alumna of the prestigious Community of Writers, and has been invited as a guest to teach storytelling at the University of Nevada Reno and the Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village. Cathee was one of ten artists selected to participate in collaboration between the California Arts Council and the California Arts Project to teach inner-city students about the relationship between fragility and caring in her Egg Painting Compassion Project. For thirty-two years she has offered this program, a holistic exploration into the world of fragility, strength, and compassion, to third and fourth graders in the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. She is honored to have worked with over 10,000 young people whose minds and hearts have helped her grow.
“My dream is to summon enough courage every day to make a quiet mark in this unpredictable world. May it be a compassionate mark.”
