thank you to my wonderful collectors

“I can't say enough about this painting. I believe that Katie has a calling to all mothers. She has perfectly depicted me and my four daughters in this print. I know that my girls will one day want this for themselves. Thank you Katie.” ~ Diane in Florida


"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
