My Story

Hello! I’m Cathy the chick behind the lens. I was that kid that always had a camera in hand. Starting with Polorids and on to film. Fox Valley Media Arts has been my passion since 2006.

I love to savor just the right moments. It is my joy to save them so they can be cherished for years to come. I feel completely blessed to be able to spend my days enjoying my work.

I have the best job ever, and I hope to meet you soon!
