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. A produce stand in the countryside, an iron-framed bed with chipping paint, a lavender field beside a turtle-filled creek―these are just a few of the rustic images one conjures up when enraptured by Katie Daisy.
