Hi everyone! I'm Kat and I can paint -- I went to art school for fine arts and illustration.

Iíve been an artist since elementary school. I was am rambunctious, quirky, super-talkative, and an overachieving know-it-all.  Think pint-sized Hermione Granger mixed with Goo from Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends.  Is that Mabel from Gravity Falls? (Seriously, my blood type is even A+)

Now Iím a full-time artist and mommy to a rambunctious, quirky, talkative little boy.  I show in galleries, travel to art shows, and I have an online shop.  When Iím not painting portraits I swing between mixed media artsy pieces, pop surrealism, nerdy fun stuff, and candy-coated whimsical childrenís illustration.
Right now I am working on my blog, cleverly named Kat Can Paint! (www.katcanpaint.com)  I share a ton of tutorials and howtos on my blog, its becoming my mission to reach+teach people who think that they can't draw or paint how to do it.

I'll probably hang out on the More Art less Craft board, but is there a homeschooling mom area?  I'm getting started with homeschooling and I want to make fun, crafty, awesome homeschooling resources.
Whew, that was a lot! Feel free to connect! Are you are a nerdy homeschooling mom, love mixed media art, pop surrealism, or just wanna chat about mom stuff and art stuff? I'd love to chat!

Hi! Welcome! I'm new here, too. I'm not a mom (not even close to it) but you seem a lot like me and also possibly as hyper. I'm a know-it-all too Tongue

Whovian, Tribute, Wreckling, Guardian.
Gravity Falls, The Little Mermaid, Pirates of the Caribbean.
Jennifer Lawrence, Johnny Depp, AG dolls, Tumblr, spies, books.
Can draw, sew, papercraft (sometimes), recycle-craft, make mini-crafts.
Interested in all kinds of swaps. Smiley
