Kate is from Salt Lake City, Utah. She will always remember the day she discovered an Ikea catalog, and realized that fabulous design was not only in her fantasies. After earning her finance degree, and spending more years as an accountant than she'd like to admit, she purchased her first copy of Adobe Illustrator. Many midnight hours were spent learning how to use it. Soon, she traded her PC for a Mac, and she never looked back. She's most inspired by the clean lines of Scandinavian and midcentury modern designers. Nothing makes her happier than seeing her designs come to life, she's so delighted every time she sees them applied.
