Kate is a graphic designer, marketer, hand letterer, and dog mom. She picked up a paint brush as a kid and never put it down; always creating or crafting something.

Kate fell in love with graphic design by chance when she accidentally signed up for a desktop publishing class in high school. Desktop publishing led to yearbook which led to a BFA in Communication Design from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.

Her work is mostly inspired by conversations with friends. She started on Society6 in 2016 when an inside joke turned into a line of fruit products, and she hasn't stopped creating since.

When she's not designing, she's probably playing with her dog, cooking delicious food, or picking up another craft hobby.
