My Story

I am a self-taught artist that practices with many mediums. I am inspired by realism and surrealism alike from what I see in nature and imagine while reading. I enjoy fantasy, but also love making practical custom merchandise that people can use on a daily basis. It just makes me happy to create things that make other people happy. 

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time”

-Thomas Merton

Kat is one of my favorite artists to do shows with. She works with so many mediums in different styles that she sometimes seems like a few artists in one. Kat is world traveled and brings a lot of knowledge and fun wherever she goes.

So my daughters attended one of her classes and I can't believe some of the great art pieces that came out of them. She truly has a knack for understanding how to bring out the creative side of kids. Some of the pieces that I have seen her do are amazing. I wish I could draw or paint like her. She is also very special in the fact that I have see so many different types of mediums she uses and that is truly rare.

Kat is an outstanding artist with so much knowledge about different mediums and ways to express her artistry. She is so versatile and a wonderful teacher for both children and adults! I highly recommend her if you would like to take an art class yourself or have your little ones be taught!

Kat has done multiple paint nights at one of our local dinners and My wife and I will definitely be returning! The event was fun and flowed so nicely that we never noticed the time. Would recommend to couples looking for a different kind of night out.

I've been following Kat's work for years! She taught adult classes at local restaurants and those were so much fun, I loved going to them! She taught a children's paint course at RVC and my Girls took that class and they just loved her! She has had her work displayed in many galleries in the Rockford area and I've gone to see her a few times. Always unique and amazing pieces.
