About the Artist
Born to a potter and a textile artist, Katy has been keepin’ the outside of her hands dirty with paint, marker and pastel for as long as she can remember. While other kids were attending summer camp & soccer practice, she was raised going to craft shows every weekend and spent vacations in a small 1920s Montana cabin. In middle school she declared that she'd be a Graphic Designer when she grew up. A decade later she graduated with a degree in Visual Arts & Graphic Design. Her hand-lettering has been shared on Pinterest, used as wedding invitations & adorned greeting cards on TinyPrints.com. For examples of her hand-lettering and doodles, check out her FB page here.
