These are the wandering journeys of a thoughtful mind, a passionate eye, an eccentric wit and an earth loving heart through the landscape with camera, paintbrush, pen and field notebook in hand.
Catherine (Cate) Kerr is a freelance photographer, artist, graphic designer and wordsmith by calling, someone with her roots planted deep in the good dark soil of the eastern Ontario highlands. After chalking up a diversity of experience in the legal sector, telecommunications, graphic design, writing, and marketing, she had dreams of flying solo and opened the KerrdeLune Design Works. She has never been happier, and she has never looked back - but she sometimes wonders how she managed to survive for so many years, toiling away in the entrails of large urban corporations.
There is a wildness to these eldering days that feeds her, and she couldn't live without it. All nature is her canvas, and the sweeping north wind her brush - the turning seasons compose the symphony, orchestrate the score and write the choreography of her random wanderings. Her happiest hours are spent rambling the woods and hills and fens of the beautiful Lanark Highlands, and the camera is her third eye - the clear and ever present lens through which she sees earth and the heavens, connects with them in a profound, painterly and elemental way and filters her experience of the living world. Call it simply an ongoing study in Mono no aware (物の哀れ).
A naturalist all her days, she is an ardent devotee of twilight, full moons, liminal spaces and the wild wisdom which sustains the cosmos, also confessing cheerfully to a love of old trees, meandering rivers, weathered rail fences and starry, starry nights.
She entertains hopes of authenticity, wildness, rude good health and enlightenment somewhere up the trail, but for now she is content to ramble and wonder and just breathe in and out...
