A special note from the artist:
Please understand that all computer pixels and color settings can be changed and vary from screen to screen/computer to computer. Because of this, the image you are looking at might be a slightly different shade of color/s or brighter/darker than seeing the physical item in person.

I will do my best to wrap and ship your item with lots of care and love. Each shipment contains an extra little 'thank you' item, as well!

Sincerely, I hope you have enjoyed peeking around my shop and I appreciate you taking the time to do so. Supporting independent artists is what keeps the individualism and freedom of expression alive in the world.

Cheers, friends,

Katie

I'm a small town girl whose mind is a tad outside the norm. I like the farm I grew up on and appreciate nature and animals and the beauty around me more than most. You can bet I stop and smell the roses, literally and metaphorically. I'm in no hurry to get through life and I believe life is worth enjoying. In the end we don't get much time here, so my philosophy is to make the most of what you have. Share what you can share, because there is always someone out there who needs your kindness, even when you don't feel inclined to give it. Recently, I have started incorporating old unwanted items in my works. Buttons, beads, other small items no one wants around anymore. Instead of letting them go to the dump and sit in a landfill, I try to make something beautiful with them again. If it's possible, I do it! Art has been a part of me as long as I can remember! Even my earliest memories were that I always wanted to color. And color has stayed with me and I use it without fear. Neutral colors are pretty, not usually eye-catching, but make a room look nice. But I am a fan of big bold colors-something that demands your attention when you walk into the room.

Artist Statement 2011
“I was born in 1985 and raised on a small farm outside Fair-child, WI. Art has always been a big part of my life, even from an early age. My first works (at the age of five) were my draw-ings of birds and making my own bird books. I have worked quite a bit with photography and have dabbled with clay and printmaking, but from the first time I worked with oils in high school, I knew it was going to be my favorite medium. In my works, I started to incorporate small found objects and have found it brings a lot more to a painting. My work with oils and mixed media is heavily inspired by both nature and the range of human emotions. My art style isn’t about perfection, and I believe the imperfections are what make a piece interesting. Abstract and surreal artwork is my style-of-choice because I love to hear the viewers’ take on a piece, especially when it differs from what I saw and felt while creating it. It’s those ranges in perspective that make working with art continuously fascinating and fun."
