About the Artist
For as long as she can remember, Katie has been making art. She enjoys oil painting, collage and mosaics. She works from her home studio in Austin, Texas but is originally from the midwest. The subject matter in her colorful pieces range from inspiration gleaned from travel to the interesting and beautiful she comes across in everyday life. Katie has participated in solo and group shows as well as past EAST and WEST and is a member of the Austin group Creative Art Society. Her prints can be found online and at Art For the People gallery in Austin.
I have been making collages from postage stamps for over a decade. My art is inspired by what I find beautiful and what I think would be fun to create. I tend to choose happy, pretty subjects from my everyday environment and travels. My focus tends toward old, antique and historic subjects or romantic, domestic and feminine. My art is colorful, accessible and playful. I am excited to be showing my postage stamp collages this year at EAST/WEST!
