Creativity is my way of life.
Whenever I say I am an artist, people ask me what type of art I do. I’ve always found that hard to answer and usually end up just saying “all kinds.”, Because the truth is that I can’t settle on one creative thing. I love drawing and painting. I art journal. I enjoy DIY projects. I crochet and quilt.
How can I round that up all into one answer?
You can find me on instagram @studio.katie, where I share everything that I love, including my fine art oil paintings, mixed media, art journals, nature, and more.
I started my journey as an artist as a kid who loved to draw on everything. As a teenager I got into scrapbooking and was published in multiple magazines.
At 17 I started a DIY Blog where I began to post my work online and I started my journey as a freelancing artist by doing DIY projects and art for art supply companies such as DecoArt, Walnut Hollow, and Tombow.
In 2014, I discovered art journaling which is when my love for crafting switched more towards fine art.
I received a set of oil paints as a Christmas gift in 2018, and have fallen seriously in love with the medium.
If it's creative, I love it.

What do I want out of life? I want to live a life doing what I love. I want to create art, travel to interesting places, and have a little studio in the forest. I want to spend my mornings painting, and my afternoons relaxing in my hammock reading a book.
I’m most happy in the space where calm lives, so that’s where you’ll find me.
