Born in Claresholm, Alberta, Cathy Long has her roots in the rural southern Alberta land. Her art reflects a spectrum of subjects and they are as multi-faceted as her influences. Drawing from the favorites of the big west skies, the people, the history, to foothills, mountains, and flowers.Cathy sold her first painting at the age of twelve.
In the mid seventies after painting many portraits and commissions, she attended Vancouver's British Columbia Emily Carr and Languara Art Universities.

On her return to Alberta she taught drawing and painting to children and adults in groups of up to twelve.

She provided art for and taught for two First Nations Groups (Louis Bull and Sandy Lake) and was the Art Workshop Facilitator for a National Aboriginal Youth Conference. She also attended the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and graduated with Honors as a Commercial Signmaker. She owned a modest sign shop in the Nisku/Leduc Industrial Park.She hand lettered many signs including truck and industrial tanks as well as show card and sprayed illuminated signs..She was an accomplished airbrush artist and had many commissions on vehicles. This type of work is too heavy for her now.

These have gone to several officials including the Former Alberta Premier the Honorable Ralph Klein and the then Minister of Energy the Honorable Pat Conrad-Black and MP Albert Klapstien. A portrait of Chief Crowfoot was also a presentation gift to the Blackfoot Siksika First Nation. During her years at the Alberta Business Research Newspaper she featured a column called Art Panache that featured interviews with great artists such as Loren Chabot and Pierre August Renoir's grandson.
