DeeDee is the owner & creative director of UmWowStudio , a mixed media supply company.
She adores designing innovative products & sharing ideas on how to use them.

She is a mixed media artist with a flair towards vintage ephemera collage and mark making. She can be recognized for her enthusiasm in all things black and white, with some neutrals thrown in for good measure. She is an avid teacher and instructor and loves a great live demo! DeeDee is super happy showcasing supplies from her online mixed media shop, UmWowStudio. She enjoys the challenge of product design work, creating unique items for other artists to use, such as chipboard shapes, book bones, art tape & much more. DeeDee also shares her knowledge & encourages a good discussion about art fundamentals, while dabbling in many forms and media. She has a gift for sharing her “raw art brain” as she works through her art pieces, either live or recorded, allowing her genuine creativity to show through. 

She thinks of this space as an online studio for her to express herself brought by a rich background full of designing, laughing, witnessing, innovating, making, experiencing, breathing, playing, living every moment, and most of all loving.

DeeDee has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Industrial Design which she’s combined with her passions for paper crafting and fine arts into this whole little nutshell that makes up DeeDee Catron the Mixed Media Artist.
