Cat Burns is a defiant artist who uses flamboyant, sarcastic humor to illustrate her internal narrative. She cultivates her work very slowly and uses it as a visual diary, creating audacious visuals as a way of communicating and synthesizing the often perplexing, manic experience of living with depression. By destigmatizing personal demons, her work explores what it means to ”go a little crazy.”
Burns earned her associate degrees in Glass Fine Art and in Glass Craft and Design from Salem Community College. She worked as a full-time assistant to other glass artists in the Philadelphia area and taught a range of classes at East Falls Glass Works and at The Studio.
