Originally trained as a textile designer at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Cathy Bartels continues to incorporate textile-making techniques in her work. Through the exploration of various artistic styles and materials, she hopes that her art encourages viewers to see the world in different and fresh ways.

“My work continues to reflect my background and interest in textiles, music, and film. This past thread continues on with my collage/assemblage series, which includes paper pulp, shredded currency, photos, CDs, and film strips.”
—Cathy Bartels
