Matt Cauthron is a photo-based creative, husband, father of four, and educator living in the Coachella Valley. Over his 30+ years as an arts professional, his work has included film and digital photography, mixed media assemblage, graphic/web design, video, curriculum design, and program development.


His recent studio work focuses compositions into assemblage that sanctify the relationship of materials, shape, texture, image, framing, and place to explore how photography is represented and displayed. Many of his pieces rely on artifacts from his immediate environment such as treated woods and metals, as well as original photographs from the greater desert region of California and beyond. 


Matt is also an adjunct professor in Digital Design and Production at College of the Desert, an Apple Distinguished Educator, Adobe Education Leader, and co-founder of the Digital Arts Technology Academy. He has worked with Apple, Adobe, The California Department of Education, and The California Arts Project to assist other arts educators, develop and present model practices, and co-author the current California Arts Standards for Media Arts. ​
