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, Instructor & Product Designer. She adores sharing her love of art by teaching techniques, demoing products, chatting about fundamentals & designing unique supplies for artists to use. DeeDee considers herself an equal supply opportunist, dabbling in tons of forms & media, while leaning heavily towards vintage ephemera collage & mark making. She loves sharing her
raw art brain” as she works through pieces live online, in person & via pre-recorded videos. Vintage markets & antique stores are her favorite resource for unique supplies, second only to the products she designs. Inspired by nature & working with other artists, DeeDee thrives in a partnership where knowledge is free flowing and experimentation is encouraged. 

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.
