Cathy Weber grew up in the Midwestern U.S., studied at Herron School of Art and Indiana University, and completed a formal painting apprenticeship in Mexico City.  In 1981 she moved to Dillon, Montana, where she maintains a studio in the historic downtown.  She is skilled at working at a variety of media though she executes the bulk of her work in watercolor.  Following the death of her partner and father of her child she began the Grief Series, a group of paintings on skin parchment inspired by 15th century European illuminated manuscripts.  Weber has incorporated the poetry of  Gertrude Stein to help express the process of grieving.
