About Me

Catherine Hughes

This is like the part of a job interview where they say, “tell me about yourself.” I never really could figure out the best answer to that.

Here goes, I am chronically curious. I love learning in all of its forms. I love to travel. It is the ultimate way to learn and grow.

I am based in the Detroit, Michigan area. I love Detroit, except for winter. I am pretty sure I have an acute allergy to winter. As such, I use my love of traveling to escape as much as I can.

I am a mother of four children. All are now adults. It is strange transitioning from active parenting as a full-time job to just being Mom. If that is really a thing, just a mom!

I married my college sweetheart 26 years ago. We have grown and changed in the past 26 years, but it has made our marriage stronger.

We both took up running a few years ago. My husband is way more dedicated to the training than I am. I have a goal of 2.5 hours for my half marathon, so hopefully, that gets my butt out the door on a more regular basis. (When we get a chance to run races again?)

I started a company to promote artists and art fairs, and then Covid-19 happened. If you are an artist and want to join the community, check out The Art Fair Gallery.  Meanwhile, wish me luck! I 

I am chronically in the middle of a bunch of projects. I am really good at starting them, finishing them seems to be a problem.
