Self-taught, Katie relies on her ability to tap into her intuition, letting the creative process unfold, rather than force an outcome. She credits the success of this process with decades of cultivated mindfulness and her sense of color and design. Her art truly reflects her personality: chaos cultivated into calm.
Highly traveled from her wandering childhood and nomadic early adulthood, Katie's art education came from visiting the museums of the world. She finds inspiration in her travels: from the exotic calligraphic script of the Middle East, or patterns found in Byzantine mosaics in Sicily, to the pedestrian juxtaposition of color and pattern in an urban skyline, or graffiti in the inner city; all feed her subconscious and influence her style.
When not in the studio, Katie likes to spend time with her family, walk her dogs along the beach, and read romance or science-fiction novels.
Find Katie at her Orange County-based studio.
