Cathy Acton sings with the Hi Hopes band, and is blessed with a voice that can easily transition between pop music and opera. As a visual artist she is similarly able to transition easily between artistic mediums. Her image of a tree with deeply penetrating roots appears on the back wall of the Integrity House Mural in Santa Ana. About her print of a bird on a branch, she says, “This is my first linoleum block print. It was a lot of work, but an interesting process. I like using my imagination to create new works of art. It brings out the child in me. I also enjoy fiber art, crocheting, knitting and making soft-sculptures as well as functional objects like purses, but my passion is performing with the Hi Hopes.”
