Katie’s vibrant and larger-than-life energy has been bouncing off the walls at the South Charlotte Small Hands Big Art studio since 2012.
Her passion is cultivating a studio environment for students to express themselves freely, make brave creative choices, be encouraged to think critically about art, and grow in their creative knowledge and confidence.
Her fine art background and creative vision have have been hugely instrumental in the South Charlotte’s studio success. Educating and inspiring students of all ages keeps her on her toes as an educator and creative force. She strives to ensure each family is able to connect to the creative experience of their young artist. If you are wondering who organized the paintbrushes, built a 5 foot art cupcake, or busted into the glitter cabinet – look no further.
She has a passion for innovating unique art projects and programs for our curriculum. Katie coaches and mentors other studio owners and teachers on the vision, brand, styling, and process of art education within a Small Hands Big Art studio.
Outside the studio, Katie enjoys life with husband Nick and two boys, while they take on creative updates at their 1960’s rambler, get creative in the backyard, and enjoy taco night on more than just Tuesdays.
