My real name is Kathryn Pierce, but my internet name is Katie Futterwacken. I'm a freelance graphic designer and artist in Monmouth, Oregon.
I've dabbled in an array of different art mediums. Compared to most artists, I take a very calculated and scientific approach to my work. I love the challenge of combining contrasting mediums, learning different art styles, and problem solving. My main focus is illustrations and pen work.
I traveled a lot as a child, but I primarily grew up in the Portland metro area. When I first started college I had the very cheesy goal of being as 'culturally accepting and aware as humanly possible', and in the process, became very educated in a variety of human rights and environment causes.
In addition to traditional art, I studied dance extensively at Portland Community College. I took classes in hip hop, ballroom, latin, ballet, tribal belly dancing, and others. I specifically focused on ballroom dance classes, which is entirely partner dancing, which helped with my anxiety and social skills.
