First Friday in Downtown Tehachapi - 5-8 p.m., April 5, 2019
March 30, 2019
First Friday in April will feature Catherine Hammons, glass painter, polymer clay artist and more. Catherine paints on glass creating beautiful glass vases, sun catchers and more. She creates cute polymer clay animals, which she uses to make fun earrings.
Raised in a crafty family, Catherine learned to crochet as soon as she could hold a needle. She also paints glass and other things like fabric and henna tattoos. She makes wire wrap jewelry and works with polymer clay. A published author, Catherine has several books listed on Amazon under the name Catherine Hemmerling. Her artistic talents are very diverse.
Born in Mountain View, Catherine moved to Bakersfield at the age of six. She graduated from East Bakersfield High School and Cal State Bakersfield where she majored in English and electrical engineering. She has worked for a number of technical companies including T-Mobile, Microsoft and her current employer, Intertek for whom she is a System Data Coordinator, building and coordinating data bases. In her words she can, "decorate and fix your computer."
Married two years ago to David Hammons, they currently live in Rosamond but previously lived in Tehachapi and hope to move back to Tehachapi soon. David is co-founder and drummer for the Celtic Band, "Mayde in Ireland." The band will join Art Larsen playing at the Treasure Trove on First Friday.
