Audio Visual Books of A Silent Story!

I now have the A Silent Story Audio Visual books READY! What a labor of love these were. I anticipated that I could MAYBE pull them off in 1 or 2 takes. But talking about over 90 pages of art WITHOUT making a mistake or tripping over my tongue or doing something silly with my hand? Impossible.   In the end I decided to cut them into 1-2 spread takes, so about 48 takes later, I had all the files 😊   The Audio Visual books are now ready for YOU!!   May I say that I really love them?...

Studio Re-Arrange - Do you love doing this, too? ♥

Have you felt the grip of Resistance when you KNOW you need to be getting something creative or soul-filling done? You are not alone! (at the bottom I share a great tip) Resistance uses our OWN voice to remind us why we should NOT be working. Why we should check social media instead. Why we should vacuum instead. Or have a snack. I could feel that I was stalling on some paintings this week, so, instead, I got a hair-brained idea that I NEEDED to rearrange my studio, because that would 'solve everything!' I knew it wouldn't, but I played...

WHO & WHY?

Over the last year or two it might seem like I've gone off the rails. Have you wondered: "WHO is 'The Seeker'? and WHY is Katie painting this character instead of her Mother & Child art?"   If you are willing to read, then by golly I’m willing to share… (also: I’m still painting Mother & Child!)     In 2018 my heart felt broken when my best friend walked away. I was officially ghosted after sharing my inner pain with someone I trusted. With no way to share and find mutual understanding, confusion, hurt and silence followed. I expected a...

Silent Story ♥ Video Proof

Silent Story ♥ Video Proof

I have a printed proof of A Silent Story! I wonder if The Seeker looks oddly familiar to those who are following this project because the shape of you and I beneath our hair and clothes and chub, and all that we put on and say and pretend… is strong, innocent, earnest, authentic, a bit awkward, and wide-eyed. That is how I see The Seeker.   She’s angular, but also soft. With long arms that will wrap around you if you need them, but will also wrap around herself when she’s feeling vulnerable. She has long legs to stand tall, but also to fold in...
