World Shibori Network

Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations

Catherine Kirsch

Catherine Kirsch is an emerging mixed media textile artist who is especially interested in surface design. Her work focuses on exploring the grid using color and texture to create depth and intimacy on long narrow panels. She employs lamination, image transfers, stitch as well as dyeing and silk screening in her pieces.

She works to make beauty. She is captivated by the prospect of creating cloth that is beautiful from a distance and intriguing when examined more closely.

In 2011, Kirsch completed the Art Mastery Program offered in San Antonio, Texas by Jane Dunnewold. This almost three-year course of study focused on attaining skill using surface design techniques and dyeing processes, as well as understanding color theory, design principles and composition. Considerable attention was devoted to developing a professional presence.

When not in her studio, Kirsch is a social worker in private practice specializing in couples therapy in Northborough, Ma.
