Hi! My name is Katie and I live with my husband, son, and boxer dog Lucy in Nebraska USA. I am a graphic designer + website designer and I own my own business. I have been building my business for 5 years and finally went full-time last March!! It has been wonderful. If you are interested in checking out my website, it is listed in my profile. I also have a blog there and sometimes include posts on artwork.
I also teach art classes at my shop. I mostly do canvas painting classes and wood door hanger painting classes, but I have done some mixed media classes. I like to partner with local businesses and have done classes at the orchard and a beautiful bed & breakfast as well. LOVE bringing art to the community!!
My favorite colors are turquoise and chartreuse. I like purple also. Really any colors are wonderful!
I like to create ATCs and mixed media art, so anything that could be used for that I am fond of. I love washi tape, stencils, stamps, paper, mists & sprays, alcohol ink, Tim Holtz products, Heidi Swapp products, Project Life, Sakura Gel Pens, Sharpie markers, tissue paper, stationary, envelopes, pens... it all makes me happy.
I like organization, storage, and I'm a big list maker. Sticky notes are my friend. LOL I am going to design some cute to-do lists in the new year. Notepads are also some of my favs. You can check out my Pinterest page for some fun stuff that I like.
I like to paint with acrylics and watercolor, mixed media art, Project Life scrapbooking, reading books & magazines (fav magazine is "O" Oprah), looking on Pinterest, taking photos of my family & scenery, vacations to the mountains or anywhere, love the ocean too.
I love coffee and have been trying different tea in the last year. LOVE pumpkin spice and vanilla! I like green tea, chamomile tea, vanilla honey tea, and fruity tea. Open to try others.
I don't watch a lot of TV, but I do like Mike & Molly, Big Bang Theory, Two Broke Girls, Modern Family, Ghost Hunters and that is all I can think of.
I can't always sit through a whole movie, but I like Bridesmaids and The Notebook.
