Katie is a Southern Californian Illustrator and Designer with a love for nature, exploration, bright colors and all things quirky. She began drawing the moment she could hold a pencil and started doing commissioned portraits at a very young age for her classmates and teachers. Her passion for illustration only grew from there, and when she learned being an artist was a real profession she could pursue (by the encouragement of her parents), her future was decided! She eventually completed her education at California State University of Fullerton with a BFA in Illustration, where she won several awards for her illustration. When she is not carried away in her art, you can usually find her weaving at her loom, camping in her home state or getting carried away with a new hobby fad for the week. She aspires to connect with her viewers, from child to adult, in awakening the sense of fun, whimsy and adventure through her art.
