Hello World! I am Katie Kortman.
I crave visual stimulation and when I can’t find it around me, I create my own. My goal is to help others do that too. I want you to see how much fun it can be to try something new, to make something in a surprising color or pattern, or to put paint to paper even if you’re not sure what’s going to come off that brush or if it will even look good. What’s the point if we never take risks or try something new? It can be so invigorating to let go and not worry about perfection! I say this, being a semi-perfectionist. (I’m like a “cheating” perfectionist because I like the end result to look perfect but I tend to take shortcuts and not worry about hairy details all the time.)
I hope this space brings joy, creative inspiration, and maybe some help in all these creative avenues, to those who stumble upon it in the future.
