Katie was born and raised near the Appalachian Mountains in East Tennessee. She moved to the Palouse after falling in love with her husband and has enjoyed making Pullman her home. Art has always had a huge impact in Katie’s life. She took various art classes growing up and has continued to make all sorts of creations throughout her life. She has one daughter who has been a guinea pig for most of our kid's projects. Katie spends a great deal of time DIY-ing and trying various home improvement projects. Establishing a love of art in children as well as adults is something that she is very passionate about.
