Hi. I'm Katie. And this is my "about me" page but I'm definitely NOT going to write it in the third person, so here you go.
Some things you might want to know:
I'm currently a stay at home mom, but I spent over a decade working as a graphic designer in the publishing and marketing fields. The things I miss most about working are: wearing real outfits, the excitement of starting a brand new project, morning meetings when everyone comes in smelling like soap and coffee, and the heart-warming awkwardness of all your adult coworkers singing you the happy birthday song.
Now I spend my days feeding, playing with, and carting around my 2 kids, David and Norah. I enjoyed them when they were babies, but it's even better now that they're old enough to speak in full sentences and use a spoon like a real human being. The absolute best parts of my day, every day, are reading bedtime stories and listening to their life observations. Kids are funny.
When I'm not doing mom/housewife/school volunteer duties, I try to squish in as much drawing, mixed-media art, and zine-making as I can. Someday I'd like to be a real working artist, but for now I'm more than happy to be a free-time dabbling artist. You can find some of my zines in my etsy shop.
Thanks for reading! Follow along here, and find me @katielicht on twitter and instagram.
