Catherine Armbrust

Catherine Armbrust poses Friday at her home in Columbia. Armbrust uses art to honor her husband after his death. This year would have been their 20th wedding anniversary.

A year after Catherine Armbrust’s husband died in 2015, she pulled his old shirts out of the closet and cut them into pieces.
