Witnessing Brilliance ~ a vibrant ‘sleeping baby’ painting

Witnessing Brilliance (an original 6×6″ painting) has JUST been released. Go get her in the Online Studio Shop while she […]

Original Bird & Butterfly Chunky Mini Paintings ~ Maid Mommy

Lately I’ve been feeling the crunch… pressed between household duties and business duties… I try to keep my priorities in mind (health, family, taking care of my clients and collectors…), and that helps. One trick I fall back on? Sometimes I magically become Maid Mommy (she arrives as my tireless alter-ego) ~ then furiously clean up, toss, […]

"Natural Magic" arrived today! I fell in love with it as you posted progress on Facebook, but I have to say that the original far exceeded my expectations. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The subtle detail that is added from the brush strokes and texture just don't come through in a picture. I can't even begin to express how happy it makes my heart to look at your art. The painting has found a home on my piano with the prints I already had. Thank you so much for sharing your gift. ~ Erin in Indiana

“As a mother of three, cosleeper, baby wearer and breast feeder I was immediately drawn to Katie's work. When I came across this painting, it just spoke to my soul. It portrays one of those moments when a snuggle with your child transcends everything and you can feel the love pouring out of your heart, connecting you and your child in an indescribable way. Beautiful piece. “ ~ Kathleen in Pennsylvania
