My name is Katie and I’m an artist and printmaker based in Tacoma, Washington. My artwork is known for vibrant color combinations and natural themes that, when looked at closely, tell a visual story. The original art print editions are created on a letterpress using oil-based inks, hand carved linoleum blocks and cotton paper. Many of my images are also used for greeting card designs, kitchen towels and other items that are sold and wholesaled with Little Green Design. To see the latest projects and events I'll be showing in, link to Facebook or Instagram.
I actively draw in my sketch book to keep building fresh ideas for new pieces. Once I have my final drawing for a new work, I transfer this sketch to a lino block and begin carving. Each color requires a separate block and they are layered over each other to create the final image. To learn more, check out this video
Aside from my mission to create imagery that enhances peoples lives, I love sharing what inspires me. I have a passion for expressing life and the common journey we travel, be it bumpy or smooth. Living is beautiful and challenging. I utilize these stories for expression and get a thrill in seeing others do the same. Expressing and sharing ideas enhances joy!
