What the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD) alumna (’95, BFA Painting) is most proud of, though, is having the ability to do what she loves for a living.

Cavanaugh recently sat down with creative blog RenderForest to discuss her artistic process and her journey to becoming an internationally represented fine artist in a Q&A found here.
