Katie is an artist, an entrepreneur and traveler. Born and raised in Greenville, SC, she always had interested in culture and craft arts from a young age. She attended the College of Charleston, earning a BS in Anthropology with minors in Spanish and Studio Art. Her artwork is often the visual interpretation of anthropological theories as she sees them manifest and overlap in her surrounding cultures. These curiosities and studies have resulted in installation pieces, sewn drawings and colleges, and a newfound interested in natural dyeing. Post graduation she has continued to explore her love of textile arts. Her interests in natural dyeing and weaving most recently brought her to Oaxaca, Mexico, where she studied Zapotec dyeing and weaving techniques. A recent transplant to Philadelphia, she is working to expand her own design business, and share her knowledge and love for textiles. In her free time Katie enjoys watching films, reading, and cuddling with her orange tabby cat.
