Catherine Elizabeth

Chicago, IL, United States

In the summer of 2011, I started making collages using upcycled newspaper. Inspired by my childhood summers spent in Northern Michigan, my first pieces are of my favorite Leelanau County views and experiences. In March 2020, after losing my job due to the pandemic, I returned to making collages using only newspaper to capture places unique to me and images I dream up. Catherine is a newspaper collage artist based in Chicago, Illinois. Her work includes the Great Lakes State, landscapes, florals, and Chicago residential architecture. Each piece is made at the kitchen table in her 350 square-foot-studio apartment. She's joined by her co-worker Charlie, a curly-haired mini Goldendoodle. While pursuing her master’s at DePaul University, Catherine enjoys exploring local breweries, listening to her favorite band, Johnnyswim, and spending many summer nights at Cubs games.
