@Cazmie / Cat Durden
[ About the Artist ]


Cat Durden (a.k.a. Cazmie) is a Filipino-American artist located in the San Francisco Bay Area who specializes in marker and mixed media illustration, along with event decoration and party prop building. 
Cat completed her B.A. in Studio Art and B.S in Biochemistry at Santa Clara University in 2019, having chosen to pursue both subjects with a deep interest in how things work on a micro-scale. She combines her love and fascination for science with her art practice in order to create vibrant and realistic illustrations of organic subject matter, ranging from bizarre insects to dreamy desserts and beyond. 
Having grown up in Santa Cruz, CA., Cat draws much inspiration from surf and skate culture, often employing similar artistic techniques such as highly saturated color palettes and bold contrast on solid black space. Her current and near-future illustration work seeks to explore fantastical ideas where realism and altered reality merge to envelope the viewer into a new, more colorful perspective.
