Picture yourself on a bed of clover sipping chamomile tea from a mason jar. As the morning breeze touches your face, you slip into a daydream and enter an enchanted world of warmth, joy, and love.
Freelance illustrator Katie Daisy lives in such world, one where dreams and reality are the same. Her honey-laced hand lettering and spring-scented illustrations have been gaining notoriety since she burst onto the scene in 2009 when she graduated from renowned Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Since then, this small town, Illinois-born wanderer has lived everywhere from the misty Cascades to the Great Smokies, sharing her passion for uplifting art with everyone she encounters.
Mixing watercolor and acrylic paint, Katie's palette shares its wildflower tones with a spring afternoon on the prairie. Whether illustrating inspiring quotes by great authors and humanitarians, or painting all things flora and fauna, her idyllic upbringing radiates through her work.
Among those who have fallen under Ms. Daisy's spell include Demdaco, who recently debuted their Katie Daisy Collection of home and garden products;teNeues Publishing Group, who proudly print Katie Daisy stationery; and bestselling self-help author, Louise Hay, who enlisted Katie to illustrate 114 affirmations for the magical book Heart Thoughts: A Treasury of Inner Wisdom. Other clients include Target, American Greetings, Pottery Barn, Papyrus, Walkers, and Madison Park Greetings,with whom Katie has a line of greeting cards.
You can add Katie's art to your own collection by visiting her Etsy shop, and/or by purchasing her products fromChronicle Books, Urban Outfitters, and several independent boutiques and bookstores throughout America, Europe, and Australia.
Currently living in the moss-filled Pacific Northwest, Katie Daisy continues to savor the simple things in life, knowing that her next adventure is just around the corner, and that wherever she goes, she'll take the prairie with her. At only 24 years of age, Katie is living proof that living the life you've imagined is possible. She invites you to follow your bliss and live your dreams by doing what you love in life.
