Courtney Prahl studied art at both Marymount University and Clarion University of Pennsylvania. Her focus was primarily on the 3D arts that later translated into her work in mixed media collage. Color plays a big part in her work, and she always incorporates vintage paper, loving the juxtaposition of old and new materials.
Believing that art should be attainable to all, she teaches art to children at the local shelter and contributes art to local charities. Courtney resides in Urbana, Maryland, with her two sons and husband.
