This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in La Veta, CO on May 15, 1888. Catherine Moore grew up in Grand Junction and attended Colorado State Teachers College. After obtaining her teaching credential, she studied drawing, design, and interior decoration at the AIC and took private lessons in china painting. In 1915 she married artist Henry Richter and, with her husband, taught at Western State College in Gunnison, CO and at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. In 1920 the Richters moved to Long Beach, CA where Mrs. Richter taught at Long Beach High School until the birth of their son in 1927. Upon moving to Rolling Hills, CA in 1939, she again began drawing and making jewelry. During WWII she designed mechanisms for the Douglas Aircraft plant; in her leisure she worked with clay and learned to weave tapestries. During the 1940s she illustrated two books entitled Bibi the Baker's Horse and Two Young Corsicans (written by Anna B. Steward and published by J. B. Lippincott & Co.) Following the death of her husband, she went to Mexico to study painting, lithography, and Spanish at the San Miguel Instituto de Allende. Upon her return, she settled in Laguna Beach where she remained until her demise on Jan. 14, 1990. Member: Long Beach AA; Laguna Beach AA. Exh: LA County Fair, 1929; San Pedro AA, 1953.
