Updates

I saw this bluebird shivering on a branch during an unusually cold spring day. He was too busy warming up to be bothered by my approach to take a photo. I was thrilled! New listing: 14x11 print with mat, just $25!
New listing! 14x11 print of a Brown Thrasher stalking through grass against a bright blue sky. Includes mat, just $25!

About

100% handmade paintings, jewelry and décor from a gal who loves birds and ballet.

About 10 years ago, we moved from our tiny Northeast Minneapolis home to a house in sleepy, suburban White Bear Lake, Minnesota. We loved the small town atmosphere of this former resort town, but I definitely missed my busy urban life!

As a graphic designer working out of the home, I enjoy working on my laptop by the picture window of our kitchen. After a few months in our new home, I hung some bird feeders just outside the window and over time I've been amazed at the beautiful birds that visit! I began taking some pretty cool pictures of our avian visitors and eventually started painting small portraits of the birds for myself, family and friends.

Later, I learned how to make glass pendants using my art and learned how to create jewelry from my creations. I like that all of the glass pendants in my shop use my own art, versus found art or craft paper.

When I'm not designing, painting or watching birds (I'm getting really good at identifying them!), I love to dance. I started ballet as an adult and in a few years was granted permission to begin dancing en pointe. It's my dream to dance in the Waltz of the Flowers in the Nutcracker some day!

As for my technique, I make everything in my shop in my home studio (ie. our former dining room!). I've got stations set up for painting (acrylic and gouache) and for jewelry making. I've also recently purchased an art printer and sourced premium paper and mats for making high-quality reproductions of my art.

I'd love to open my own bricks-and-mortar shop someday with my wares and those of other local artists. My Etsy shop here is an important first step. Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to convo me about what you'd like to see!

    Art Project merges three passions of the artist, Kat Hase: birds, ballet and art. Most of the paintings originate from photos Kat took of birds in her own yard. Also a dancer, Kat keeps “on her toes” thinking of fun phrases to include in her art.
