Cathleen Savage (b. Cathleen Cavanaugh, 1960) is an American wildlife and nature painter currently working in watercolor. Her paintings are often described as luminous and delicate, and as having a calming, restorative effect on the viewer. Her artwork has been exhibited in national and international venues. She is a member of the Society of Animal Artists. Cathleen maintains a home and studio in southern Colorado.
Her current body of work depicts birds in an ethereal environment with late afternoon light falling softly on their feathers. She seeks to recreate the feeling of seeing them for the first time. Her use of watercolor complements this goal.
