Katie is an independent fantasy artist in the greater Seattle area. Her focus is on fantastical creatures with strong roots in our natural world and specializes in both traditional media with watercolor, and 2D digital media with Photoshop. Landscapes and environments play a large role in her works as a result of growing up surrounded and inspired by majestic scenery of Montana, and further fed by the beauty of the Pacific North West. Recurring themes in her work include dragons and other elegant mythical creatures in fully rendered landscapes and environments.
She travels to art shows and conventions to display and sell her work which can also be found here in the shop. Freelance is taken on rarely when the fit is right, and is available for book cover work (Indy authors welcome!).
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you offer whole sale orders?
A: Yes! If you are a brick and mortar store looking to carry my artwork, please head over to this page and submit an inquiry.
Q: Can I license some of your art?
A: Yes! Much of my work is available for non-exclusive licensing. I may even have something not posted here but you saw in an old Twitter or Instagram post. You can even describe to me something that’s needed and I’ll see if I have something or we can talk freelance rates if you need a custom piece. Please go here to submit an inquiry.
Q: Are you available for commissions?
A: Many of my projects are ongoing and take up most if not all of my focus, so I don't generally accept private commissions with the only exception being the “Elder Dragon” and “Path of the Sage” tiers of my Patreon. I am available for book covers or other freelance work if it aligns with the work I already love doing .
Q: Can you draw my tattoo, or can I use your art for my tattoo?
A: I do not take tattoo commissions for a few reasons. As it turns out, what looks great on paper doesn't always look great on skin, and I firmly believe that in order to get a high quality tattoo it's much more important to find the right tattoo artist. A good tattoo artist can design a tattoo that fits your body right, and their skill level will ensure it looks right too. If you find a piece of my artwork that you would love to get a tattoo of that is OK with me. All I ask is that you purchase a print of that particular artwork. This is how I make my living so I am greatly appreciative of support so that I may continue making new artwork!
Q: I need a logo made for my business and merch, can you do that?
A: My area of expertise and focus is in illustration and paintings, so I do not accept logo work.
Q: What medium do you work in?
A: I work both digitally and traditionally. For digital work I use Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. For traditional work I mostly use watercolor and ink, but will also utilize graphite, colored pencil and play with gold and silver leaf.
Q: How long have you been doing art?
A: This is a two part question. The literal answer is, as a kid I would sit around with all the other kids as we scribbled on paper. As we grew older the other kids would stop drawing but I kept going. Professionally, I've been doing art full time since 2015. I did professional work before then, but 2015 was when I officially started doing art full time so that’s when I like to start.
Q: I like a piece of your art that I found online. Can I use it for my book/game/project?
A: Much of my work is available for licensing and requires a contract before anything may be used for any reason. Please use the contact form below to send a detailed message for further inquiries about licensing.
