From childhood onward, Catie has always had a desire to create, starting at age 7 with her collection of pencil and crayon drawn cartoon characters. She graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics and a Bachelor of Science in art education, and spent a two-year artist residency at Red Star Studios in Kansas City, Missouri. Catie currently works as a studio artist and occasionally teaches classes for kids and adults. She enjoys pushing the role of traditional ceramics by using a monoprint technique to add colorful,playful patterns to her functional forms.
"From celebrating with friends to brightening up every corner of a home, my pieces are made to bring happiness. With plays on tradition and contemporary design, my pottery is intended to be used and enjoyed daily as well as collected and cherished as heirlooms." ~ Catie Miller, Fargo ND
