A bit about Catherine:

Catherine Wright grew up in Newfoundland in a creative family where self expression was encouraged. From an early age, she made up stories with her teddies, toys, rocks or anything that was to hand. Catherine continues to embrace playfulness, creative exploration and discovery in her roles as mother, arts educator, multidisciplinary performer, creator of silk works. Her telling of folk and fairy tales, personal stories and original tales are often interwoven with movement and song. Catherine has presented at many venues and events for audiences from preschoolers to seniors. She is currently Past President of St John’s Storytelling Festival Inc, and the provincial representative for Storytellers of Canada (SC-CC).
