Artist & Photographer: Catherine Goron


When a customer mentioned one of my pictures is the first thing she sees in her kitchen every morning and it makes her happy, my heart was filled. Beyond creating photographs for myself, knowing they can brighten your day is what inspires and fuels me to pursue this journey beyond myself. Photography helps us connect to beauty and to each other.

For me, photography is the practice of paying close attention and seeking out poetry in the everyday. Photography is really a kind of reverence for the now. I strive to make pictures that convey a sense of nostalgia and beauty and timelessness; ultimately, I hope my pictures cause you, the viewer, to stop and linger and smile...

I'm a life-long Photographer who has spent many hours in the darkroom. I was born in the Philippines, grew up in the Washington, DC area, moved to Paris, France where I was fortunate to be living and exploring Europe for five years with my husband and our two boys; and today am based in Seattle, WA.

To view my collections, please visit the Ocean Sky Lab Gallery Shop online or visit me in-person at markets and pop-ups in Seattle (check out @oceanskylab on Instagram for the latest dates). I hope we can connect in person some time...

For all of you who have stopped by, taken the time to chat and share your stories, plans and memories with me, thank you for your kindness and support of my art... I'm so humbled and grateful to know my work connects with you in some way. It helps me remember that making art adds value to the world, that it matters.

“There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it.” -Gustave Flaubert
