Artist's Biography and Statement

Catharine Miyung Kim Woodin
b. 1963
surrealist/pop art

Catharine Kim Woodin holds a BFA degree from Eastern Michigan University, but has been drawing and painting all her life. Initially schooled as a graphic designer, her art career has taken many twists and turns, including a few years designing and producing stained glass windows. Perhaps this experience helped to cultivate Catharine's interest in translating the three dimensional visual experience of "transparency" to ink and watermedia. The interplay of her autodrawn figures and background imagery or the overlapping of shapes composed of pattern (critters) allow the viewer to bounce between the definition of solid form and the idea of seeing through to the other side. Rich with personal symbolism, her paintings create windows into her imagination.

She completed her series called Survive/Thrive, an Artist's Journey from Cancer to Watermelon. and is currently working on her new series Emotional Alchemy.
