Katie Helser's Profile

About

Hi, my name is Katie. I'm a lot of different things to many different people, and I spend my time doing many different things, all while I strive to be an artist.

I'm a wife to an incredible man who is as energetic about life as he his about exploring it. I'm a mother to wonderfully imaginative and spirited children. I am also the co-owner of Ginger Roots Farm where my husband and I grow produce and flowers. We farm with two gigantic Brabant work horses, raise dairy goats and chickens and have many other little animals that fill our days. I love to cook almost as much as I love to eat. I prefer being outdoors rather than inside, I adore plants, and I'm pretty much obsessed with botanical illustration. I'm also a member of the American Botanical Artist Association, check out the link to see all the amazing art that is being produced by these artists!…

As a kid, I used to steal my Mom's Burpee seed catalogs and draw from the beautiful photographs. Only recently did I discover the actual art of botanical illustration, and I have been smitten ever since.

The beauty of the natural world cannot be reproduced, but I sure like trying! All my work is handmade either in my small studio, or outside somewhere tranquil, well mostly tranquil, there are always wrestling dogs, giggly kids or a munching horse somewhere nearby. :)
