Since I could hold a crayon, I have loved creating art. I spent my childhood surrounded by mountains of books, crayons and colored pencils. Mermaids and fairies populated sketchbooks and spare bits of paper, while Medusa herself guarded my math tests.

Today I am an artist and illustrator living in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. I work in oils and pastels as well as a variety of other media. Recent clients include the Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum, the Town and Country Players, the Lehigh Valley Military Affairs Council, sand Boathouse Pictures. I have exhibited my work in a variety of juried shows such as the Byers Bucks' Fever Art Exhibition, 'Drawn From Nature' at the John James Audubon, the Artsbridge Annual Open Juried Show, and the Bucks County Illustrators' Illustrators Night out.

In 2014, Pennsylvania State Senator Pat Browne commissioned me to paint a scene depicting a Revolutionary War hospital. This work, A Moment of Peace, was presented to The Lehigh Valley Health Network at the opening of their new facility in July of 2014. I also enjoy selling my fine art and illustrations at festivals in the Philadelphia area. You can also find my miniatures and other small items at www.etsy.com/shop/KatiesArtfulGifts.
