 Katie's contemporary style and use of colour provide a refreshing alternative. Her dog and cat designs are painted digitally and came about after friends began requesting pet portraits. The idea developed into the greetings cards, fabulous velvet cushions and prints. Katie currently supplies to a small number of gift shops.


 Launching her NEW 2018 Collection of Coasters, Cushions and Greetings Cards Katie is looking to attract Boutique Gift Shops, Garden Centre, Pet Pamper Centres and Pet Shops whose discerning clients would like to brighten up their lives with her bold creations.

 In 2017 she was a Theo Paphitis #SBS and Jacqueline Gold #WOW award winner. Both celebrate entrepreneurial women and exciting new businesses. Katie will also take commissions to paint your family pet.
