Katie Collins grew up in a tiny picturesque village just outside Nottingham in England. Not only was this an idyllic place to be raised but it was also close to the city center of Nottingham which is full of art and culture.

Working on board the cruise ships led Katie to America where she met her husband of 23 years and where they had their 2 children. Katie can be found painting in her studio most days or in and around Orlando, FL.

She is dedicated to not only satisfying her customers but to giving back to the community by donating a portion of all proceeds to charities listed below and to victims of crime and disaster in the news.

Painting is a way of life for Katie and not only can it be her escape from daily stresses but joyful and fulfilling too. “When your focus is to put all of your energy into the bigger picture, which is helping others, everything you do just flows out of you," says Katie.


When Katie isn’t painting she can be found at the yoga studio, dancing salsa or with friends and family...and her cats.
