About the Artist
My name is Kate Welch. When other kids wanted to be the president or a nurse, I always knew I wanted to be an artist! I studied drawing, painting and sculpting at Fontbonne College for two years. During that time, I spent a semester in Paris studying drawing and painting. I continued my education with 4 years at Rochester Institute of Technology studying graphic and communication design. After graduating, I worked in the design and advertising field in Manhattan. Choosing to stay home and raise my children, I started my own hand-painted clothing line. After relocating to Charlotte, NC, I began my wall mural and faux finishing business. That business continued after relocating to Bucks County, PA in addition to the beginning of my floorcloth business which started about ten years ago. I hope you enjoy my work!
