Cima Katz was born and raised in the metropolitan New York area. She received her BFA in 1971 from Carnegie Mellon University and her MFA in 1974 from Indiana University. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Kansas, she held teaching appointments in Oregon and Ohio. Though trained primarily as a printmaker, Cima's research has historically been motivated by content; she has fostered a variety of specific technical strategies as required. Her current research involves the use of mixed media digital and physical collage to investigate notions of re-invention of self, place and family history in an historical context.
