About Me

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!!

Likes and Dislikes

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.

Hobbies and Fun Stuff

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.

Favorite Television

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.

Stuff I Like

Blue & Green, Purple, Washi Tape, Project Life by Becky Higgins Clark, Stamps, Stencils, Doilies, Coffee, Tea, Buttons, Ink, Paint, Sprays, Gel Pens, Sharpie markers, Stationary, Sticky Notes, Notepads, Paper, Astrology, Dreams, Quotes, Nail Polish, Art & Craft Magazines, Books

Favorite Books

I love to read and I have just been getting the time this last year. I have read tons of books on business, creative business, freelance, art techniques, and about different artists.

Favorites: Taking Flight by Kelly Rae Roberts, Eat Pray Love, Art at the Speed of Life by Pam Carriker, Brave Intuitive Painting by Flora Bowley, She Takes on the World by Natalie MacNeil, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte, Devotion: A Memoir by Dani Shapiro,
