Hi! I’m Katie. I paint, I sew, I jump, I dance! I also parent 4 children by day (and night). Â It can be exhausting, but creating art and clothing and dancing all day really help me enjoy life amongst the mundane and exhausting tasks that can accompany motherhood. I hope that doesn’t sound like I don’t enjoy being a mom. I do. I love my children to the moon and back! But I also need to express myself in other ways;)
I am originally from West Palm Beach, Florida (born in St.Louis though!!). I attended a middle and high school for the arts, then got my Bachelors (BFA) in Drawing and Painting from Brigham Young University. I worked for Anthropologie as a display artist (as in I had a studio in the back where I made art stuff to decorate the store–each store has their own artist!) for a few years in Chicago (suburbs) and in Utah. I later got married and went back to get my Masters (one week between those events!) in Teaching Art.
Here I am now. Married and with 4 kids. I teach out of my home Â (art and sewing) when I have free time. We are in the military so we get to move all the time and explore different parts of the world which I absolutely love (except the packing and unpacking part!).
This is my crazy life and I hope you enjoy seeing what I do!
