Hi, my name is Cat
I'm a Mixed Media Artist living in Central Florida and I've been creating full-time since 2011. I teach, design products, and work as an independent contractor for some pretty amazing companies in the arts and craft industry.
I believe that curiosity is the driving force behind what I do. I consider myself a "creative mad scientist" because figuring out what materials can do and learning how to incorporate them into my work, is what I consider, the ultimate joy of the creative process.
I work with paper, resin, wood, plastic, metal, leather, fiber, paint, anything and everything that speaks to me. My job, which I take very seriously, is to balance these materials with new products out on the market and I accept that challenge wholeheartedly.
Below are just some of the places you can find me and my work.
I've been fortunate to have my work featured in national and international publications over 80 times since 2011. I work in all genres so you can find my work in sewing publications, jewelry publications, art journaling, home decor and even fashion publications. My work has also been featured on five covers of Somerset Studio, a mixed media journal by Stampington Publications. My most recent cover was in the fall of 2019
I've appeared on multiple seasons(200,600,700,800)of the PBS show "Make it Artsy"
"Make It Artsy"
is a show dedicated to the crafter, maker and artist - celebrating the maker spirit and enthusiasm that extends to every part of life. It’s more than crafting, more than art or scrapbooking, showcasing everything from mixed media to metalsmithing, using tools from saws to sewing machines, and materials from paper to wood. Join host Julie Fei Fan Balzer and unleash a new look for crafting with a touch of industrial style.
