Born in Los Angeles, Cathy Bartels moved to New York City to study art and design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She continues to incorporate techniques that she learned there in her current 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 and gain a greater understanding of our time.

“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
