Becoming a Freelance Artist

In 2012, Boston Magazine ran an article all about Katie. It reveals that she has had a talent and passion for art since she was a child. While she previously worked at Reebok, designing apparel, she quit to pursue her career as a freelance artist. She then went on to complete sketches for major retailers such as Target, Coach and Missoni.

The same year she allowed photos of her home to be posted on a website called The Glitter Guide. Her home décor shows how she put her artistic talent to work within her own four walls. She also gave the website an interview in which she stated that she used art as an escape from life while growing up the only girl of her parents’ four children.
