Cate Thomassen




Mosaics, Mixed Media, Painting


Cate is best known for her mosaic art—using hard-edged materials to portray the shape, flow, and texture of living forms.

A native of Canada, she originally worked in paint and found object sculpture—exhibiting and receiving grants both individually and as a member of “The Coterie of Malcontents” artist collective.

In 2002 Cate moved to California where she discovered that she could combine her first loves, and in effect, both paint and sculpt in mosaics.

In 2010, she launched shardArtist® and her work was quickly accepted in highly competitive juried shows and sought after through private commissions.

2015 found her living and working in Todos Santos, MX, where she participated in Open Studios, Baja 100 and exhibited her work at the Galeria de Todos Santos.


Cate now creates art from her studio in Las Cruces, NM where she is excited to see how her work will continue to evolve.
