I created UmWowStudio as a way to market myself and record all I do, from the paper crafting and memory saving I do to the fine art works and product designing. Not to mention some of the experimenting I seem to find myself engaged in frequently. I thought of it as a studio for me to express myself brought by a rich background full of designing, laughing, witnessing, innovating, crafting, experiencing, breathing, playing, living every moment, and most of all loving.
It has now grown to be its own entity and forced me to start my own personal blog and site. Welcome 🙂
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Design which I have combined with my passions for paper crafting and fine arts into this whole little nutshell that makes up DeeDee Catron the Mixed Media Artist.
