Hello, I'm Catherine. the ARTIST and creator of Authentic Bleu.
I love to create. Coming from the NYC area originally, I am inspired being near the gulf coast now in Sarasota Florida. The sunshine and creative vibe is all around me. When creating art in my studio, I lose all sense of time and place. It's as if the world around me stopped and there is peace and harmony.
I am thrilled to showcase my collection of ocean abstract art and recycled ocean art at the recently opened Palmer Modern Studios in Sarasota, Florida. We are a Contemporary Art Gallery, Collective and working art studio. Located In the trendy Limelight Arts District in Sarasota FL, our converted warehouse hosts exclusive gallery events and talks, introducing the community to art. Sign up below for latest news and events.
Just as the ebb and flow of life and the ocean, my paintings exude energy and movement. Having passion for art, the ocean, blue color (color of the ocean) and instilling positive messaging, I am deeply rooted with creativity and kindness in my soul.
Being able to blend abstract art, a blue palette and love for the ocean, I am in my element! Such gratitude to be in such a beautiful place and in the "flow" creating art. Abstract Art by Authentic Bleu Art is available for purchase, both original art, giclee prints and artisan pieces. I hope to inspire you with my work. Thank you for your interest.
Original artwork created in a stunning palette of blues to coordinate with any coastal space. The Authentic Bleu signature style and brand is all about movement of abstract ocean life and vibrant blue hues.
These abstract canvas pieces are painted in Acrylic. Whether a bold blue heron or a modern take on ocean life-there is a "look and style" in the paintings with beautiful tones of blue. Coastal inspired paintings using navy blue, turquoise, shades of sky and ocean blues and touches of white.
Many canvas sizes available as well as and giclee prints of certain paintings. Each giclee is a limited edition and numbered, signed by Catherine in various sizes and ready to frame. Gallery walls can be created with Authentic Bleu by Catherine Armbruster abstract paintings to make a statement.
"Circle of the Sea" original abstract painting shown to right is an example of my work and framed in pine.

I take PLASTIC single use bottles or containers and turn them into ART. They can be used as a vase for flowers, holder for pens/pencils, paint brushes, toiletries, etc. It can be called up-cycling, re-cycling, re-purposing, sustainable or simply "ART".
One of a kind beautifully covered containers which would have ended up in the ocean have now been transformed. Each piece is hand made with care and no two are alike. Beautiful ocean themed prints and patterns with stunning blue colors. Blue is my favorite color and the color of the ocean.
Classes coming soon teaching you how to turn your own plastics into art. Ask me when!
With all the miles-long plastic pieces ending up in the ocean, we all need to participate in helping to protect the marine life. By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans. As a blue planet with our ocean covering 3/4 of the earth, we can all do something, as I have.
Decorated, up-cycled art container shown is in navy pattern with trim in rope and shells found in Sarasota FL. This was previously a single use water bottle and now art.

DEFINITION OF AUTHENTIC: Something that is real and genuine. The mission is to be Authentic to ourselves and others. Having an affinity for the ocean and anything blue sparked the idea for this brand. The color BLUE resonates with me and I use it generously in my artwork. It is meant to inspire people to give back to the ocean and earth. As we enjoy the beauty of the ocean, we need to learn more while participating in saving marine life from plastic.
WHY- BLEU? Bleu is the French spelling of the color blue, my favorite color. Blue being also the color of the ocean which is my passion to protect. Let's spread the word and save the ocean through ART.
Gratitude and appreciation for life and nature.
