Hi there! My name is Katie and I am a watercolor painter, illustrator, photographer, and designer living in the wonderful city of Lynnwood, Washington.
I studied fine art painting and graphic design at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, D.C. after graduating from high school in 2002. I completed an MBA in 2018 and currently work with small organizations and businesses doing marketing, outreach, and design work. In 2021, I completed a certificate program in UX Design and became interested in accessibility and user advocacy.
I recently was appointed by the Lynnwood City Council to a position with the Lynnwood Arts Commission. I look forward to serving my community and promoting, supporting, and advocating for artists and the arts within Lynnwood.
I currently teach art classes at the Schack Art Center in Everett, WA. Come take a class with me! View my class schedule here (please check back every quarter- more classes will be added!)
Animal rescue, Alzheimer’s/dementia, the arts, mental health and outdoors stewardship are all causes that are important to me.
Other facts about me: I am a mushroom forager, rock hound, climber, hiker, and lover of the great outdoors. Nature is my biggest inspiration and my favorite place to be. I love to read as well - my favorite genre is horror.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work!
