Cathleen E. Bradley
“CB” is a mixed media artist and former school teacher who is interested in how things fit together.

She is stimulated by symbolism and story-telling, and prides herself in repurposing … morphing familiar discarded objects into something new, “upcycled”. CB is represented by the Powers Gallery in Acton, MA, and has exhibited her work in galleries and museums. Her work was recently published in ClothPaperScissors, a mixed media technique magazine, and can also be viewed at studiocb.blogspot.com.
