Katie was born and raised in Greenville SC. South Carolina’s unique and storied heritage guides her subject choices. A deep-rooted obsession with time honored southern culture is the essential, emotional connection which pilots each brush stroke. Light is her Muse. It is the emotional layer that informs her senses and emboldens her to create. She likes to use light as the intangible layer that dances across the canvas and creates the first and final impression.
