Catherine Siravantha is a young creator based in Asheville, NC with experiences in multi-medium art forms, exploring concepts of identity, femininity, and connectivity with oneself as well as between others.  She attempts to combine her passions for social change and the degradation of societal norms with her artwork.
Outside of her own work, she has experiences working professionally in film and TV production.  She also has experiences working with various advocacy and empowerment organizations such as Behavioral Health Awareness Coalition, Bridge Refugee Service, Reproductive Health Uganda, and Children's Defense Fund with hopes in joining media and art forms with advocacy and empowerment.
More is in progress.
