I have worked with Katie several times. She is imaginative, inventive and incredibly talented. She created a beautiful family tree that was a gift for my in-law’s 65th wedding anniversary. We met several times to discuss ideas, and she was very communicative and open to my suggestions and thoughts throughout the process. It was a treat to see how the mind of an illustrator/calligrapher balances letters and images into a marvelous piece. She even provided suggestions when choosing the right frame. The family tree now hangs in pride of place at my in-law’s house and has received many compliments from relatives and friends. If you have the chance to work with Katie I cannot recommend her enough. —Cordie

I have photoshopped many of the names because a full family tree just seems like too much information to have out on the web
