About Cathy Germay

Cathy Germay graduated with honors from College for Creative Studies in 2005 with a BFA in Fine Arts. After graduating, she returned to Kalamazoo, MI and now has studio space in the Park Trades Center. Her artwork is heavily influenced by her medical condition callled Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) and chronic pain. In her artwork, she wishes to explore the fragility of the human body and where mechanical and electronic parts merge with the human body.


Welcome to Cathy Germay’s Blog.

Here, I plan to share insights, updates, work in progess and the thought processes behind my artwork.

I also hope to review art exhibitions given by galleries and other artists.  I will also share contemporary, as well as historical, art work that I find inspiring and give my opinions and thoughts about other artists’ work.
