A personal note from Katie:
Welcome to my Online Shop! When you shop here you are buying direct from the artist. I am a wife and a mother of two sons in the USA. I create my sentimental mother and child paintings one by one in my studio, and sell them direct to my many collectors.
Growing up as youngest in a family of 4 children, I relished time & space to explore through writing, drawing and people-watching. Always interested in the dynamic relationships between those around me, I later narrowed that focus to study the sweetness between mothers and their children.
As a mostly self-taught painter, I started my first business in high school when I launched a pencil-portrait business. Graphic design and illustration took me to Central Washington University and after creating and selling art while also owning a graphic design business for 6 years, I chose to focus exclusively on painting in 2008.
Each day I strive to balance being a loving mother and a good businesswoman, while capturing intimate moments of motherhood in paint, with whimsical compositions and soothing colors. I do NOT always find balance :)
There is a daily conflict for a mother of young children. For me it is a challenge that reawakens every morning as I balance my desire to be a patient, graceful mother and at the same time fulfill an instinctive urge to bring forth the creations of my soul and realize my dreams.
Being an artist who works from a home studio is also, perhaps most importantly, the way I model to my children the value of following their dreams and exploring their gifts.
