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!
