  • Originally from New York City, Cathie lived overseas six years in Saudi Arabia and France.  She has concentrated on the color reduction woodcut since earning an MFA degree in 1987 from Bradley University where she had a one-person retrospective in 2016.   She returned to Peoria in 2004 from France.

    Her work has been included in more than three hundred exhibitions, thirty solo exhibitions, seventy-seven juried national shows and sixteen international juried exhibitions since completing a BFA from The Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio.  Crawford has received forty awards at both the national and regional level. Her woodcuts have been exhibited in twenty-eight states as well as France, Poland, Saudi Arabia, and the UK.

    Crawford prints reductively from one piece of ¼” luan plywood.  Her small editions are known for luminous color achieved by numerous blended (rainbow) rolls of transparent ink applied with brayers and litho roller to the woodcut printing matrix.  Mylar stencils expand the color possibilities for each woodcut print by allowing her to work reductively within a given shape.  She prints on handmade Japanese Kozo paper with oil base relief inks and the aid of a Dickerson Combination press.
