About

Hello! I'm Katie Cisek, and I love to create whimsical paintings, mixed media, and art dolls.  I especially enjoy painting faces and seeing their expression and character come out. I am happiest when I'm in my studio with some good tunes, a cup of tea, and my furry friends around. 

Since moving to Indiana a couple years ago, I kinda strayed from the art path I was on. One of those pesky full time jobs got in the way. I'm hoping you will help me get my creative groove back! I have done art fairs, and sold at a local boutique, but it has been a challenge to reach a larger audience. I am hoping to send more of my art into the world and see where it takes me. 

I have been busy painting new cards and canvas boards for my Kickstarter campaign. The goal is to bring some fun art into your home, and for me to start painting and creating every day again! With a project like this, it will push me to dedicate more time to achieving my goals, and try new techniques. So, I get to do something I love, and you get a wonderful surprise in your mailbox! And who doesn't love that!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my art!

I have quite a few collage cards ready to go already. I love going through my stash of ephemera and creating these.

Risks and challenges

I cannot foresee any risks. I'll be busy painting all my days if this is a success. I have a printer for postcards I have used in the past and am happy with their product. If you all help me make this happen, then I'll be sure to make art happen!....and, who are we kidding, I'll be making art regardless!
