She is best known for her whimsical designs and character creations with broad expressions, cheerful personalities, and squat-like features. Katie has been working with polymer clay since 2008 and has explored every technique published.

She has been published in magazines, featured in blogs, and worked alongside many accomplished artists from around the globe. She has worked with polymer clay artists Christi Friesen in 2013 for The Friesen Project, Lisa Pavelka for the 2015 Pavelka Project.

While she loves all forms of polymer mediums, she is a passionate whimsical sculptor who specializes in caricature type faces, characters, & creatures. Each and ever character she creates has a backstory. These stories are what inspires her creations!
