Catherine Altice is a multimedia artist who, more often than not, incorporates painting, drawing, sewing, stitching, fiber art and photography into her two-dimensional and three-dimensional works. She received her Master of Fine Arts Degree (graduating with honors) in Studio Art from Johnson State College / Vermont Studio Center, 2011 and her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting and Printmaking from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, 1990. Catherine is also an Appalachian State Alumnus and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mass Communications in Advertising and Marketing in 1987.

Working as a professional artist for over twenty years, Catherine has exhibited works throughout the southeast and has received numerous grants and honorariums. For over nine years she has owned and managed Tin Roof Gallery and Studio, located in West Jefferson, NC. For fun and profit, Catherine is also a jewelry maker. A long time ago, she was a dancer and performance artist and attended the American Dance Festival, served on the board of the North Carolina Dance Alliance and danced in and choreographed works for the Appalachian Dance Ensemble. She’s since traded in her dancing shoes for running shoes and now gets her kicks from running anywhere from two miles up to 26.2 miles.
