Catherine Mellinger is a mixed media and analog collage artist whose works find inspiration in the ideas originated by the feminist artists of the Dada period as well as the early Surrealists, lending to the exploration of dichotomy; real and unreal; beauty and trauma. Mellinger’s works have been published in literary magazines, and she has been commissioned by musicians, writers and private collectors. She lives in Waterloo, Ontario, with her husband and son.

“…an intoxicating, accretive reading experience, shot through with
recognizable truth and a clever use of the splice of precision and
interruption to deliver them.”
- Anakana Schofield, Toronto Star
“Deep Salt Water is intimate and sensual, tidal and saline –
how can a book be tidal and saline? These words make sense within the
environment of the book. Apostolides’s language is not of pristine
nature but of the anthropocene, our current geologic age of bleached
coral and oceans choking on plastics. In light of man-made climate
catastrophe, learning this language takes on added urgency.”
- Jade Colbert, The Globe and Mail
