Since Katie was old enough to ride a bicycle and pick up the Friday newspaper, she has been going to garage sales, collecting crafting materials, art supplies and curious objects. She inherited a love for recycling from “the original recycler,” her Grandpa, who taught her that even used elastic from underpants might come in handy some day. She has an BFA in Painting and Fibers and recently quit her job of six years in the gallery world of Chelsea to pursue her dream of being a stay-at-home mom and domestic artist.
Katie lives in Brooklyn, New York and Woodstock in the Catskill Mountains with her husband Miles and daughter Ruby. She spends her free time cooking, baking, painting, crafting, sewing, embroidering and doing the occasional woodworking project. She also enjoys spending time in the kitchen where she attempts the art of baking and has been experimenting to come up with delicious, simple recipes that are comforting, healthy, and made with local ingredients when possible. Life is Made is the result of love for the outdoors, recycling, creating beautiful things, and being committed to the philosophy that life is only as good as the things that you make.
