Cat has trained and graduated with a BA in visual arts and fine art education from Purdue University.  After putting some time into teaching art in public schools, she hopped ship and headed out west to pursue a career as an artist.  Her first stop was a handmade jewelry business in Denver, CO.  Now, she resides in Chicago working from her home studio and at Lillstreet Art Center.  More often than not, she finds herself drawn to teaching art to the community through non-profit programs and art centers.  She reacts by using a variety of processes and materials with fondness for metalsmithing and a body canvas.  To succeed in this artistic lifestyle choice, she creates small tokens of adornment for purchase, consignment, and commission.
