About

My Shop Story

Hi! My name is Katie Schmid and I'm an artist. From the moment I figured out I could draw, it's all I would do in my free time as a child. I also loved to dance. As I gained some skill in high school, I knew it was what I wanted to do as an adult. After graduating from high school, I attended Northwest College of Art in Poulsbo, WA. I earned at BA in graphic design and fine art in 2001. As many freshly graduated college students find, it's hard to take the next step. I took a detour and married my high school sweetheart, Chris. Right away we had our first son, Noah, and so an art related job was put on hold. The circle of life continued, with our second son, Jonah, and our third son Micah. While raising these beautiful boys.
When my youngest son turned one in 2010, I made a decision to start painting again. I wanted to do something for my kids rooms. My mind whirled with ideas. The possibilities really were endless. I had heard of Etsy before and did some exploring. Many shops had personalized artwork for kids rooms. Some were hand-painted, some were digital. The more I looked, I wanted to create real artwork for kids rooms with quality in mind. I wanted the themes to be thought out, well crafted, and hand-done. So, I started.
I began doing themes for kids I knew to create samples. I wanted to make them detailed and special. The more I did, the more I came up with new ideas. Once I had a few solid themes, I opened shop!! Waiting for that first order was like watching paint dry....lol.... but I finally got an order. Things were very slow at first, which is to be expected, but as I gained a fan base and came up with more paintings, other customer have found me and given me the opportunity to create art for their homes! I'm blessed to have this shop and I enjoy every minute. It's a ton of work to run a painting business, run a household, and raise children all at once, but painting is my therapy and a joy that I get to have be my very own. It might sound corny, but I did follow my dreams and did what I set out to do. The customers I have are fabulous and I treat them all with respect and put their ideas first. Thank you to all of my customer so far and future customers. You are wonderful and allow me to create unique art for your homes!

Welcome to Kates Kid Art! Here's some general information about how I operate. All of my paintings that are in my shop can be recreated to your liking. They are only samples. The idea is to pick a theme that you like and then work with me to personalize it. I can help with color combos and you can even tell me any paint swatches you are using in a room and I can duplicate as best as I can. Depending on the size of the name, sometimes the paintings need to be altered a bit, but will look as close as possible to the theme you order. This is a fun process for me so please don't hesitate to ask lots of questions! One thing you can expect is that you won't be disappointed! I am a perfectionist at what I do, and will never send a painting unless I too am completely satisfied! Before I ship your painting, I can take a picture of it from all angles so you know what you are getting, and I can change anything that you are not completely satisfied with. Please note that there is 3 to 4 weeks between ordering and receiving your painting, as these are all handmade and take time to complete. Orders will not take more than 4 weeks. When ordering for Christmas, I recommend allowing an extra week, in case I am overloaded with orders. I'm the only painter in the house! :)
