Hello, I'm Cat Swartz, an independent vegan artist that is strongly inspired by nature & imagination. I reside & work in my native hometown nestled in Northeast Ohio.



I typically sculpt in polymer, epoxy, thermoplastic, cotton, wire, & paper. Hand color layers in inks, acrylics, and/or pastels. I am also an illustrator, photographer, printmaker, dollmaker, & jewelry designer.

See some samples of some of my photography, sculptures, & illustrations below.



It's becoming more difficult to reach my entire audience on social media outlets due to algorithms, & thus, oftentimes, I'm not seen in my many art posts. So, it's time to make a change, take charge, & give exclusive access to my exclusive community by means of using Patreon. Onward to create a next chapter! I'm here to create more possibilities for my work & grow as an artist. You have the exclusive opportunity to be in the front row seat of this journey. I'll be sharing my exclusive work in progresses, some mentoring & how-to tidbits (from sculpting, photography, etc), funny bits & stories, behind the scenes views, etc. I hope that you join me to be an exclusive guest inside my studio & join in my exclusive community.

Oh, what fun we will have, I cannot wait to share more with you & learn more about you on the way, too!
