Hi there! I'm Katie, and I paint things that make me happy! A large amount of my art is based on video games I have loved since I was 5 years old. Nintendo is heavily represented in my work - it was my dream since I was very little to work there, and I made that dream come true! I worked as an artist for Nintendo for 6 years, and am proud to have my name on video games and apps in some of my favorite series - Super Mario, Metroid, Kirby, Donkey Kong, and Animal Crossing! I have now gone out on my own to focus more on the fun and messy stuff I love: painting!



Working as a traditional and independent artist has not been easy. I work crazy long hours (even more than I worked in an industry that is known for insane overtime!), but I LOVE what I do. The financial support from Patreon helps me to continue to paint things that make people smile and laugh; I believe it is good for the world, as silly as that might sound! I want to be an example of doing what you love, and creating a happy and successful life through it.

Thank you for visiting my Patreon page!

I will ask for a list of your favorite video game and animation characters/items, foods, animals, etc - but you never know what will actually show up. I may do a themed series for one month's rewards, individual favorites the next, then a set of colorful abstracts - it'll always be a surprise!

Goals
$455 of $600 per month
This is a huge goal of mine! Convention costs add up very quickly, especially when there is any travel required. I would LOVE to bring my work to San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic Con, WonderCon, and other large geeky conventions. This level of funding would help me to cover the large costs associated with doing these huge shows, and would also help get my art in front of a much larger audience!
